The timetable for the trains has slipped by two years. The Strategic Rail Authority hoped to launch local services by the time the Channel tunnel rail link carries Eurostar trains to London's St Pancras station in 2007.
This is part of my site The FG that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for best venues + things, + I know it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
