New High Speed Rail (draft) timetable released today

New High Speed Rail (draft) timetable released today

Read about it here on

See the actual high speed draft timetable, 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 site The 'Gerald that I built 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 now. The site used to be updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for others 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 attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
