Golden Arrow's Last Visit to Folkestone Harbour


The glory days of steam trains were re-lived today (27 January) in Folkestone when the Golden Arrow 'Boat Train' pulled into the Harbour station for the last time.
Hundreds of onlookers lined Folkestone harbour to see the Battle of Britain Class locomotive Tangmere pulling the train from Victoria Station in London.
The historic journey enjoyed by 250 enthusiasts was organised by the Railway Touring Company.
