The full and profusely illustrated story of the train ferry service between the UK and Belgium, from its beginnings with World War 1 surplus military equipment, to its closure as British Rail prepared for privatisation.
This book is a long overdue history of the train ferry service between Harwich and Zeebrugge, its precursors and its legacy. The author was intimately involved with the service as British Rail's Rolling Stock Inspector in Zeebrugge, and in researching this book, he has also drawn on the archives of friends and colleagues as well as official sources to produce an authoritative and well illustrated account.
