AT LEAST the cover photograph of the new national railway timetable, which comes into effect tomorrow, shows, accurately, a deserted Waterloo International station. And, in keeping with the delay in establishing a rail link through the Channel tunnel, Table 350 (London to Brussels and Paris) is ominously blank. But in case you thought you would take a ferry instead, beware of Table 305 (London to Rotterdam and Amsterdam, change at Sittingbourne). The ferry link upon which it is based, from Sheerness to Vlissingen, shut down a fortnight ago.
