When I had the tour of the new Stratford International station last month, mention was made of plans to do tests of the new Eurostar terminal at St. Pancras – and that they would probably open it to the general public.
Well, the website is live now – and I have made a booking for the 8th November and will spend the morning/early afternoon pretending to be a passenger. We don’t go through the Channel Tunnel – but everything else is real.
They are actually being very generous – as participants can get their travel expenses paid, get free meal AND a voucher for a free return trip on the Eurostar to be used later.
Much different to Heathrow which is only offering a light snack to people who help them test their new Terminal 5.
Anyhow – linkie to Eurostar here (warning, didn’t work in my copy of Firefox).
