Other News


It has been brought to our attention by Folkestone Harbour Company that they are not responsible for the projected demolition of the harbour station- evidently because Network Rail have not yet transferred ownership because of freeholder identification difficulties. This with reference to the upper part of the line, above the inner harbour. This has effectively stalled any track lifting and given Folkestone Harbour Company the perfect cop out line of saying that 'The harbour station's nothing to do with us'...so all we have done is added Network Rail as an additional recipient of our 'Halt the Destruction of Folkestone Harbour' petition! Please sign this,by the way, if you haven't already!

Halt the Destruction of Folkestone Harbour Railway Station


Recently we have (via the Auspices of 38 degrees) run a national petition to avert the destruction of Folkestone Harbour Station by Folkestone Harbour Company and as I write , it is still running- latest total 2107. Please sign this and share to everyone you know with a viewpoint similar to yours. Here is the link :
