Olympic Javelin train service (part 1) London 2012 Olympics. Ebbsfleet – Stratford International – st pancreas on high speed 1 Every 7.5 mins

The Olympic Javelin train service running during the London 2012 Olympics. The Olympic Javelin service runs from Ebbsfleet – Stratford International – st pancreas on high speed 1. There is a train every 7.5 minutes. The service is run by 140mph class 395 javelins trains. All of the trains at 2 sets long, and the service is using so many javelin trains, that the regular Southeastern javelin services were running a reduced timetable during the Olympics.

At Stratford International, the javelins were using the never used Eurostar platforms! trains alternated between the normal platforms and the Eurostar ones to reduce the crowds (although there was not as many people as I thought there would be). You can’t get to the Eurostar platforms from the normal station entrance, because if it was Eurostars running, there would be passport control. It was interesting to see the never used Eurostar side of the station.
