⬆️Sunday Times takes the Orient Express

You can see it rumble into Folkestone Harbour every (Thursday, I think?) lunchtime. A magnificent sight. It always amuses me that these folk, who have splashed out on this most exotic mode of transport have to decamp from their luxury train onto possibly Britains most run down station! From what I understand, Mr de Haan intends to rip the tracks up as part of the refurb and the train will terminate up at the tunnel station? So check it out while you can...


💬 I will check that out I reckon!

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site used to be updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and things, + I know it was a handy reference for others who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
