A Unique Boat Train.
The Harwich route to the continent is especially useful for journeys to central and north European points. It does not attempt to compete with the Southern Railway services to and from Paris and south European centres, but provides a quick and particularly comfortable means of reaching cities like Brussels, Antwerp, Berlin, Copenhagen, Hamburg and Stockholm. Apart from the regular daily passenger sailings, there is operated between Harwich and Zeebrugge, in Belgium, an extremely efficient train-ferry for the movement of goods traffic of almost every kind, and particularly for perishables conveyed in special containers.page 28
