Coming soon: take a non-stop train from Germany to London
This Autumn, that may change when the German rail operator trials a modified ICE high-speed train on a journey from Germany non-stop to London.
The Siemens built train has been specially designed to adhere to the strict fire safety rules in place for rolling stock passing through the tunnel.
While a commercial rail service linking Germany to the UK may not be ready this year, a successful trial could eventually mean catching a train in Frankfurt, Munich or Berlin, and getting off in London several hours later, all without dealing with the hell of the airport. Sign me up.
