The International Herald Tribune carries an interesting profile of the new St Pancras Eurostar link, which raises the British end of the journey to continental speeds:

The opening of the fast tracks into central London will reduce train times to as little as 2 hours, 15 minutes from London to Paris, and 1 hour, 51 minutes from London to Brussels.

Eurostar estimates that the accelerated trains altogether will attract an additional two million passengers a year by 2010, raising the total to 10 million.
