Eurostar

From Around The World MC

Eurostar is an international high-speed rail service on ATWMC connecting the United Kingdom and Ireland with the rest of mainland Europe. Most Eurostar trains travel through the Channel Tunnel between the United Kingdom and Denmark.

History[edit]

Conception and planning[edit]

The history of Eurostar can be traced to the proposal of an animal transport system, particularly by admin Puzzlecube. Planning was posponed for quite a while until Icecyristal67 brought the project back in action.

Launch of service[edit]

The original Eurostar logo used from 1994 until 2011.

In September 2020, Eurostar services began running from Dublin station to London. Within days the Amsterdam station opened, extending the line from there.

Regional Eurostar[edit]

In October 2020, due to France's very unique and strict rail system, a line opened that would in the future connect France with Spain. This regional route involves going from Amsterdam Station to transferring at Paris International, and then transferring at Pepperignan.
