New Eurostar trains

What do we think of the new fleet of Eurostar trains?

With our growing business in the UK, and London in particular, we have recently had more occasion to travel on the Eurostar. This gives us the opportunity to experience the new fleet of train wagons that have improved in comfort and aesthetic. The decor is more refined and simple ... more design. The furniture is ergonomically better and the seats more comfortable. One minor drawback, however, is the ubiquitous use of plastic on many details, giving an impression of ‘bottom of the range' quality that can quickly look outdated.

Overall the travelling experience is a good one, with the sole exception being the new Buffet Car, now smaller than before and unfortunately the height of the windows being unsuitable for the configuration of the space: the windows are too low in relation to the buffet-car furniture, which invites the users to stand in the carriage and not to sit.
