Description

Fifth anniversary of the Eurostar service, at Waterloo Station, by Lynn Patrick, 1999. The photograph shows Golden Arrow, hauled by a steam locomotive, next to the Eurostar. The Golden Arrow was a Pullman train, which began running in 1929. It took passengers from Victoria Station in London to Dover. The passengers transferred to a ferry to Calais, and at Calais joined another train, the 'Fleche d'Or' (Golden Arrow) which took them to Paris. The service was withdrawn in 1972. Today, however, passengers can catch the Eurostar direct from London to Paris, a journey of under 3 hours.
