@alex26 Yeah they are small, built to fit in UK's loading gauge. During first years of operation, Eurostar trains ran on regional lines between Channel Tunnel and London, collecting current from third rail. It was only 2007 when High Speed 1 line with St Pancras terminal was fully operational. HS1 is built with mainland Europe's bigger loading gauge. That's why e320 trains are "normal" size, but cannot run anywhere outside High Speed 1 in UK.
