Eurostar services began in November 1994, owned by SNCF, SNCB and the British Railways Board. A BRB subsidiary, European Passenger Services, was created which included British Rail's interest in Eurostar, and this was sold to London & Continental Railways in June 1996. In October 1996 the name became Eurostar UK Ltd. Eurostar Group was set up in September 1999, with each of the three railway-owned Eurostar companies represented on the Board. On 31 December 2009 Eurostar (U.K.) Ltd became part of a single joint venture company, Eurostar International Ltd, then on 1 September 2010 this company became a single business with three shareholders. The Government set out plans to sell the 40% British share on 4 December 2013, which were completed 4 March 2015.
