 TGVweb - Eurostar
Eurostar's debut was delayed by the controversy surrounding the time and budget overruns encountered during construction of the tunnel.
Eurostar is already woefully underpowered when it uses third rail (it has about one quarter of its full power available, in order to limit current pickup to about 750 Amps per shoe) so frequent tripping made it impossible to keep an already slow schedule.
Eurostar's third rail pickup shoes are not linked through a 750 V power cable running the length of the train, so that when a break in contact occurs, the load cannot be taken over by as many other pickups.
