RAILS ACROSS THE SEA
The Harwich – Zeebrugge Train Ferry Story
by Kevin Hoggett
This informative, bilingual book is a long overdue history of the train ferry service between Harwich and Zeebrugge, its precursors and its legacy. The author, Kevin Hoggett was intimately involved with the service as British Rail’s Rolling Stock Inspector in Zeebrugge, and in researching this book, he has also drawn on the archives of friends and colleagues as well as official sources to produce an authoritative and well-illustrated account. It is the complete story, from its beginnings with World War I surplus military equipment, to its closure as British Rail prepared for privatisation. 80 pages.
