High Speed 1 (HS1), officially known as the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL) and originally as the Continental Main Line (CML), is a 108-kilometre (67 mi) high-speed railway line running from London through Kent to the British end of the Channel Tunnel.

The line was built to carry international passenger traffic from the United Kingdom to Continental Europe; additionally it carries domestic passenger traffic to and from towns and cities in Kent, and has the potential to carry Berne gauge freight traffic. The completed line, crossing over the River Medway and underneath the River Thames to London St Pancras railway station, opened on 14 November 2007. The line allows speeds of 230 to 300 kilometres per hour (143 to 186 mph) and cost £5.2 billion to build. There are intermediate stations at Stratford International, Ebbsfleet International and Ashford International.

This is the vehicle terminal at Cheriton in Kent, UK with Folkestone in the background.
