Le Shuttle Resumes Full Car Service

May 18, 1997

The train service that carries tourists and their cars through the Channel Tunnel, between Folkestone, Britain, and Calais, France, resumed its full schedule last week. Le Shuttle had reduced service to two trains each way per hour, from four trains each way per hour, after a fire in November damaged part of the tunnel. Repairs on the damaged track were finished last week. Round-trip fares start at about $103 per car, regardless of the number of people riding in it. Reservations: 011-44-990-35-35-35.

BritRail's Eurostar, which runs a passenger-only service via the tunnel from London to Paris and Brussels, earlier added a 14th train to its daily schedule, resuming the service level it had before the fire. Information: BritRail Travel; toll-free tel. (888) BRITRAIL.
