Description

At this time first class passengers were still served food in their seats, and could eat a full three course meal. However, during the later 1960s it became more common for passengers to buy snacks rather than meals, as journey times had shortened, due to the increase in faster traction. The Hook Continental train transported passengers from Liverpool Street station to Parkeston Quay, to connect to a ferry taking them to Hoek Van Holland.
