New High Speed Rail (draft) timetable released today

FG ≫ 2009 ≫ New High Speed Rail (draft) timetable released today

Thanks @robsilsbury for the tip, still says under an hour from Folkestone to London!

Read about it here1 on

See the actual high speed draft timetable3, including high speed rail link between Folkestone and London Kings Cross St Pancras - looks like 57 minutes from Folkestone Central if you catch the direct train or 56 minutes with a change if I'm reading this right. Not much good with timetables.

The timetable does include services direct from Folkestone West and Dover to London Kings Cross too. Another service runs from Canterbury West to London Kings Cross St Pancras in one hour too.

Sounds good, it's only the draft though, I expect these times will be lengthened to fit in potential delays...

This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came here in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar + voting for best venues + things, + I know it was a useful reference for others who were thinking of moving here. Now Iʼve moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesnʼt get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great arenʼt they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
