don't be surprised because it may be possible that you may get a 450 in the Eurostar terminal 8)

Only if it does indeed stay as a rail terminal and is handed over to SWT ;)

It most probabaly will, as SWT need more platforms at Waterloo and around 20 length coach platform would be ideal for SWT as they could fit in 2 10 car 444 desiros, or maybe a 12 car 450 and an 8 car 458, or SWT maybe shorten and then again they may re-build the terminal so it fits in with the main Waterloo station.

IMHO it would be alright if they filled in the bit downstairs at Waterloo where the gates are to get into the Eurostar terminal. Then it'd be flat and they could make it look like the rest of waterloo.

Reading the Various Mags apprently international station is useless for SWT, as its on the wrong side of the station. If it was to be used for SWTs, It would be used by the Widsor Line Services, which you all know are 8 cars at the most, so there will be loads of wasted platform space, and if these services started using international, the windsor platforms would be used by "Main" services, but that aint alot of help either, as the "windsor" line platforms are shorter.

Yeah, that would really suit Waterloo actually, but i mean, even if they just leave it and run trains into the old eurostar terminal which happens to be around 22 coaches long, at least they will have that extra space to put trains.
