Date Proposed Traction Proposed Route
14/09 Hastings Unit London Victoria - Orpington - Tonbridge - Dover - Dunkirk - Paris
14/09-15/09 Hastings Unit Paris - Dunkirk - Dover - Tonbridge - London

Notes :
(1) Would have used the train-ferry. Was re-dated from an earlier date as this was the only time available before the train ferry was to lose its passenger license. It was suggested the train would leave London between 4.30 and 5am and there woudl be 8 hours in Paris. The return would use the 03.00 train ferry from Dunkirk meaning an arrival back into London around 8am.
