    What have they done to those trains! I read somewhere that they are basically the same as French TGVs... they don't suffer from this, so what is Eurostar doing to them that's different?

    I think they've said the root of the problem is a change in temperature when they enter the tunnel which causes condensation.

    i believe thats the problem the tunnel IS warm so train goes in and moisture in the surrounding air /tunnel changes and water forms on the train
