A Southeastern class 375 train at Waterloo platform 22 on 30 December 2017

The London Waterloo International platforms once used by Eurostar are back in action, 10 years after the Eurostar service was diverted into London St Pancras.

Southeastern trains bound for Ramsgate and Hastings, were leaving from platform 22 in the old Waterloo International train shed.

Twelve-car class 375 units travelled via the Nine Elms flyover (specially built for Eurostar trains in the early 1990s), and past the old steam engine shed site at Stewarts Lane. The trains then followed the former Eurostar route through south London towards the Channel Tunnel.

The former Waterloo International platforms were being used by some trains diverted from London Victoria. The diversions continue today (Sunday 31 December 2017) and tomorrow (Sunday 1 January 2018).

Waterloo International was used by Eurostar trains from 1994 to 2007 and is in the process of being equipped for use by domestic services.

The international platforms were also used temporarily in August 2017 when several other platforms at Waterloo were out of use for engineering work.
