Remarks & Notes 
On 20th/21st March La Poste TGV set No 951 made a special run from Lyon in France via Paris to London St.Pancras through the Channel Tunnel carrying freight and mail. This was to demonstrate the possibilities of carrying high value express freight on the European high-speed lines by EuroCarex - European Cargo Rail Express linking Lyon, Frankfurt and Paris to London from 2015/17. As the TGV set had not been passed to work under its own power in the UK it was hauled by two EurtoTunnel Krupp diesel locos and after the press event at St.Pancras they hauled the TGV set to Singlewell loop for the rest of the day where a South East Trains Hitachi class 395 'Javelin' high-speed domestic train passes behind.
