    That's not a Eurostar service, it's still Southeastern.

    When did they say that? I certainly haven't seen them in the timetable, and nothing departs from or arrives in the Eurostar platforms.

    They really need to loosen up on the restricted areas, we have a nice playground but there are some very enticing areas that are off-limits currently.

  12. Eurostar services wouldn't call at Stratford or Ebbsfleet, so like RobSkip said, these are just southeastern services, and are not supposed to represent Eurostars. Also, PIS boards say that these trains have destinations like "Dover Priory", so no way it's a Eurostar.

  13. That would be nice, but those areas don't have TVM, or speed limits, or quality scenery, so it makes little sense that we would be allowed to go near them.

    With all due respect I think some of you guys need to do a bit of research on the line and its services.

    First of all, let me make this clear, these ARE NOT Eurostar services.

    These are simply your standard Southeastern services which go via Ashford and then subsequently head back to St. Pancras round the loop. The loop shown in this picture below is used by services in both directions.

    In SEHS the only drivable services we have our the services via Gravesend. The AI services are the ones that go via Ashford, and then de-spawn in the portal.

    I always hope they'll add (and merge) the Eurostar route St. Pancras-Ashfors intl-Folkestone in the future as a separate Add-ons. More traffic, and ICE and TGV train based along the HS line.

    I tried one of the services (heading to dover priory) on PS4 and it stated I did not have permission to drive the service. It did however let me sit in the secondman's seat and watch.

    There is a workaround by sitting in the seat before the service start time. After this, permission will not be granted to drive (as the service is going out of bounds). Try spawning in a bit earlier.

    The only benefit you get out of Driving these AI services is going as far as Stratford then waiting for one back through the tunnel.
