Stored Eurostar set sent for scrap
The fifth Class 373 Eurostar set to be sent for scrap arrived at European Metal Recycling’s’ Kingsbury facility on March 18.
Unlike other sets taken to EMR the 18-vehicle set, with power cars 373013/014, had been stored for several months. Others had been taken straight out of traffic for scrapping.
Eurostar is disposing of all but eight sets, with the ‘373s’ being replaced by Siemens Class 374 e320 Velaros. Already sent for scrap have been 373003-006/ 019/020, 373107/108.
