This is a shuttle service between Calais/Coquelles in France and Folkestone in Britain. It conveys road vehicles by rail through the Channel Tunnel. Passenger and freight vehicles are carried in separate shuttle trains. The service is owned and operated by Eurotunnel, the Channel Tunnel owners. The carriages used for the shuttle have a larger loading gauge than either British or French railways; consequently they cannot travel outside the tunnel and the two terminals at Coquelles and Folkestone. Each terminal is provided with a loop of track. After a train comes out of the tunnel, it goes round the loop and stops at the unloading/loading platform. It is then unloaded, and re-loaded with a new set of vehicles. It then starts the return journey through the tunnel. assenger vehicles are carried in a car shuttle train, made up of closed wagons. Half of the train (the rear rake) carries cars and other low vehicles in double-deck wagons, with the first and last two carriages of the section containing the access ramps. Coaches, buses and other high vehicles travel in the single-deck rake at the front of the train. Trucks & containers are carried on semi-open wagons, with a separate passenger carriage at the front of the train for the drivers.
