By John Hendy. This book tells the story of the Folkestone Harbour branch line, along with its station and pier as well as examining the trains and cross-channel ships which served the area.

Today the harbour, pier and station have been completely refurbished, leaving the visitor with little idea that the area was once part of a vital link to mainland Europe.

Chapter List:

  • Folkestone and the Railway
  • Steam Engines of the Branch
  • The Branch Line
  • A New Century
  • Decline and a New Dawn

Rails Across the Harbour: Folkestone and its Branch Line describes the history of railways in Folkestone and the role the town has played in cross-channel transport for over 170 years. Well illustrated throughout with colour and black & white photographs and maps. 72 pages.
