Interesting stuff. How expensive is it to go without a reservation? (Just driving down there and take the first train available).

I have never tried. I usually book in advance either ferry or the tunnel. And actually, haven't used Eurotunnel for several years, it's pretty claustrophobic experience.

However, I once jumped into a ferry (P&O) with no reservation and paid 50 pounds for a return ticket in low season. Another time I paid a hundred euros one way from Boulogne-sur-mehr to Dover using, not existing any more, fast ferry.

Cars move on uneven platforms and slopes, so could blind operatives helping drivers to line up. There is another interesting obligation; vehicles' windows and sunroofs have to be left partly open whilst shuttled.

Very nice pics!

By the way... some of them could be posted in the signs to non-neighbour countries, couldn't they?

I think you'd find that it's on the border between China and Russia.

To be fair to him, I somehow missed the 'between China and Russia' bit on your post and I was going to say the same thing
