The British Rail Class 373 train is an electric multiple unit which operates the Eurostar service from London Saint Pancras to France and Belgium. The train is essentially a long TGV, modified for use in the United Kingdom and in the Channel Tunnel. Differences include the smaller cross-section, to fit within the constrictive British loading gauge; British-designed asynchronous traction motors; and extensive fireproofing in case of fire in the tunnel. It was known as the TGV TransManche Super Train (TMST; i.e. "Cross-channel Super Train") during development up until start of service in 1993. Some shorter 16 carriage units are known as the TGV North of London (NOL) due to their initial planned affectation to the East Coast Main Line.

Class 373 is its allocation under the TOPS classification system in use in the United Kingdom. In France, it is known as the series 373000 TGV.

The bulk of the units are operated by Eurostar International Limited (EIL), whereas some were also operated by SNCF, and some were operated by GNER. See British Rail Class 373 for details which TMST numbers were in use by a certain operator at a certain time.
