Student Games Services

On Saturday 5th May, in association with The Student Games at Stratford, there were additional "Javelin" shuttles between St Pancras and Ebbsfleet which used platforms 1 & 4 (the unused international platforms temporarily raised for Olympic shuttle use) at Stratford International. The use of these platforms also allowed a new vantage point for photographing regular High Speed services using the domestic platforms. Note also the multiplicity of twelve car formations on this day.
