Kent school children joined Eurostar to celebrate its 10 year anniversary of setting the high speed rail record.
A special plaque has been unveiled today by the driver, Alan Pears, who set the record in Kent.
On July 30, 2003, a Eurostar train sped through Kent countryside to set the record at 208mph on High Speed 1.
The record was taken near Medway Viaduct and to celebrate the record an event is taking place today.
