Every story has an ending and so has our September 2019 France escapade with Bordeaux and Marseille. It was time to return home from Marseille-Saint-Charles. We took an inOui, ex-TGV, to Lille-Europe and then a Belgian NMBS / SNCB train to Kortrijk and Antwerp.
After a weekend in London, Steve I returned to Belgium with the 17.55 Eurostar to Brussels. Tó the United Kingdom we traveled in Eurostar’s e320 (aka Siemens Velaro). On the return journey we got a refurbished e300, aka British Rail Class 373 or TGV TMST.
Train enthusiast Jeroen travelled by train in Spain and Portugal in 2018. He shares his adventures with Trip By Trip. He first told us why he likes night trains.
