Bring Back Euro Trains

Campaign for the return of international trains to Kent stations

Partner Organisations and Campaigns

BBET partner with several rail-and transport-related organisations whose aims complement our own. We also recommend other websites for train-related information.

Campaign for Better Transport (formerly Transport 2000) have a 50-year track record of advocacy for sustainable transport. Campaigns Manager Michael Solomon Williams took part in BBET’s webinar in March 2024, read his contribution here.

Enroute promotes and campaigns for sustainable transport in Great Britain. Joint Chief Executive Harry Burr is working on a research piece with BBET.

European Rail Campaign campaign for better rail links between Europe and the UK and across Europe. Their website has detailed rail maps of Europe and links to useful rail-related information. The Travellers’ Tales section describes personal journeys made across Europe by rail, including one by our core member Stephanie Boucher.

Thames Gateweay Tramlink are working on a tram project under the Thames to provide direct public-transport links between Kent and Essex. They hope to link into Ebbsfleet International Station, which would enable cross-Channel passengers from Essex to by-pass London on condition international trains were to stop in Kent. Managing Director Gordon Pratt and Business Development and Construction Director Simon Johnson have met with BBET to express their support for a reinstatement of international services to either Ebbsfleet, which would link in with the trams, or Ashford which links to Ebbsfleet via HS1.

Other useful websites

The Man in Seat 61 provides comprehensive rail information for travellers around the world. Their excellent section on CIV tickets is especially useful to us in the UK, for travellers via Eurostar and the Hook of Holland ferries.

Interrail, once the preserve of the under-26s, nowadays provides specialised European train ticketing for all age groups.
