Eurostar train 9084 arives in Marseille St. Charles station

Terminus of the line: one single train all the way through from London St. Pancras to Marseille St. Charles. An early start in London but TGV travel at speeds of  up to 300km/hr to arrive in early afternoon sunshine for a view of the Mediterranean from the station forecourt. They serve breakfast and lunch with airline style catering if you want it. But it’s another strike day for the SNCF (French state railways) so the platforms are rather quieter than usual.
