Eurostar said several of its trains were running at least an hour behind schedule after one of them got stuck in the undersea Channel Tunnel, linking Britain to France. The train from London to Paris was stuck for roughly a half hour Wednesday, but the driver eventually got it moving and out of the tunnel beneath the English Channel. Eurostar, which operates passenger trains in the tunnel, said the problem was associated with a device on the top of the train that draws power from overhead lines. Trains in the tunnel already were operating at a reduced service following a fire that broke out on a truck in the tunnel Sept. 11.
