There's an ICE at St Pancras today.

They are such pretty trains.

I approve, though 2013 is a bit late - we could have done with this on Saturday, as it would cut out a change at Brussels and give us more time in Cologne.

More time in Koeln is always good.

They run on the Rhine route past Freiburg down to Basel. They're definitely one of my favourite train sets.

London to Amsterdam! Woohoo :)

Edited to add: even better, looks like they'll stop at Rotterdam (more convenient for us visting most of our Dutch friends), and a journey time of 4 hours is close to competitive with flying.

That's the London to Rotterdam part being 3 hours.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that that's actually as fast as you could make it, centre to centre.
