Work starts today on the removal of the fire-damaged train from interval six of the north bore of the Eurotunnel.
The train has been in the Channel Tunnel since a fire broke out about 11km underneath the French coast on 11 September.
Eurotunnel told NCE that the French rail investigation body BEA-TT had given the tunnel operators the green light to start moving sections of the train from the tunnel.
"We're hoping to get about 130m of the 800m train out today," said a Eurotunnel spokesman.
The train will remain in BEA-TT's possession and will be sequestered in a covered facility as they continue their investigation.
