    Folkestone Harbour station is a railway station built to serve the port of Folkestone. The branch and harbour station provided a rail connection for boat trains from London which connected with the ferry services to Calais and Boulogne.

    In 1994, the opening of the Channel Tunnel led to the majority of ferry operators moving to other ports in the South East, with the result that only two services per day were arriving at Folkestone Harbour, to connect with the Hoverspeed SeaCat services. When these were moved to Ramsgate, the station closed to ordinary rail traffic in 2001 although the line and station continued to be used by the Venice-Simplon Orient Express (VSOE) and railtours until 2009.

    The station is currently "Mothballed" by Network Rail. Visited with Orangeman91, who forgot his camera!:crazy Very surprising how bad the station has got in so little time.
