Deutsche Bahn showcased a Siemens high-speed train in London on Tuesday which it hopes will run services to Germany through the Channel Tunnel, challenging Eurostar's monopoly and Alstom trains. The ICE 3 train, which can hit 320 kilometres per hour, was on display at London's St Pancras station following safety tests. Deutsche Bahn is aiming to operate services from London to Frankfurt and Cologne by the end of 2013. REUTERS/Andrew Winning (BRITAIN - Tags: BUSINESS POLITICS SOCIETY TRAVEL) - RTXTLO5
