Eurostar_GNER_int1.jpg (54779 bytes)

Standard-class interiors of a Regional Eurostar set (14 cars) operated by GNER.

Interiors are the same as on Cross-chunnel services, as far as Standard class is concerned.

These units were originally to run on still-born services between Paris and the West Midlands, Northeast England and Scotland. Since 2000, part of them (4 out of 7) have been leased to GNER. They are diagrammed on the "White Rose" services London-Leeds.

This car marks the end of a batch of 7 cars, independent from the other 7-car batch. This has been imposed by the Anglo-French Intergovernemental Committee, so that the trainset can be split should a fire occur when crossing the Chunnel.

This set is one of the two which have retained their original livery. Yet, all Eurostar labels have been removed, while GNER has applied its own numbering tags and has partly blacked out electronic destination displays, so as to hide the original Eurostar numbering pattern.

Eurostar_GNER_reliveried_reddoors_1.jpg (67316 bytes)

Regional Eurostar set (14 cars) of GNER, seen at London-King's Cross, awaiting departure to Leeds.

These units were originally to run on still-born services between Paris and the West Midlands, Northeast England and Scotland. Since 2000, part of them (4 out of 7) have been leased to GNER. They are diagrammed on the "White Rose" services London-Leeds.

This unit is one of the two reliveried to GNER standards. Originally, doors were blue with the red stripe, as the rest of the set. They have recently been painted all in red, so as to meet the expectations of the Health & Safety Executive, which is keen on having visible doors...

Standard-class intermediate trailer. One can notice that part of the destination display has been painted in blue, so as to hide the electronic car-numbering. GNER has indeed applied its own car-numbering scheme, which one can see close to the door. One can also notice the "White Rose" logo and branding.

An appropriate way to round off our pictures featuring 60009 on the Steam Dreams 'Cathedral Express' run to Norwich and back is this view of a modern East Coast Main Line train in the form of a Eurostar with one from the days of steam, the A4 being visible in the background at Kings Cross London on the 11th October 2003.

This Eurostar is not heading for the Channel Tunnel but is on a GNER London Kings Cross bound Leeds service. The sky looks threatening and yes it did rain but fortunately not for too long. The date is Saturday 6th September 2003 and the place is Alexandra Palace.

This is now HISTORY ! GNER have ended using Eurostars on their Leeds services as from December 2005 when this picture was taken. Class 91s with Mk 4 coaching stock and HSTs now cover all the diagrams. The blue set is shortly to form the very last 'White Rose' Eurostar Service which started running in May 2000...when we saw the first one at Doncaster.
