Channel Tunnel after the Fire

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone any experience of what it is like to travel on the Tunnel post the fire?

    Do they stick to the timings shown on their web site or do you end up waiting for hours no matter what time you are booked for?

    Are there large queues and is it difficult to get on the more sensible crossings?

    Or should I swallow my pride and go back to crossing the Channel on a vomit strewn public toilet of a ship?

  2. This is their latest timetable, I'm on it on Thursday so I'm hoping it will be ok.

  3. Travelled last Thu and it was p1ss easy.
     
  4. Did they let you on the train you'd booked or put you on another?
     
  5. We travelled on the train we'd booked on. There was a bit of a queue however - its worth getting there a bit earlier.
     
  6. I travelled Passenger last Wednesday to Calais and Freight back to Folkestone the next day. Slower than normal, but if you tip up early enough you'll be fine.
