      whe are taking the Eurostar to London

      there is a difference between the Eurostar en le shuttle (for de ones who did not know this yet)


      Eurostar: takes passengers from Brussels and Paris to London and back

      Le Shuttle: ferries passengers while they are in their car beween Calais and folkstone

                You can not find operators from outside North America in the drop down list. You can look for them and perhaps find some photos.

                You will find quite a few photos from the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and the UK. There are also photos, though not many, from the other EU countries as well as China, Australia and a few others. Even a photo from "Under the English Channel".

                The international forum is rather death. The last visitor was a looooong time ago.

                              Hey AirFrancefan, there are loads of non-US pictures in the database at RailPictures, I have over 100 shots there which include only 2 from the USA, and I know that Petertenthije has lots of shots from The Netherlands too.

                              Just type in a country in the search box and they will appear.
