Approaching Folkestone in 1983
Approaching Folkestone in 1983
Seen from the deck of a cross-channel ferry approaching the Harbour Pier. This was the boat-train from Calais, which was timetabled to leave the port at 16:00 (French time) and dock at Folkestone at 16:50 (UK time). The train was timetabled to leave Folkestone Harbour at 17:32 to arrive at London Victoria at 19:03. The previous day, I had boarded a train at Rome (Termini) which was timetabled to leave at 16:25 and had travelled to Chiasso, where I had changed trains to that for Calais Maritime, which was timetabled to leave at 00.19 to arrive at Calais at 14:40 the following afternoon.
