First introduced by the LNER in 1927, the Hook Continental was a named passenger service that ran to and from London Liverpool Street and Harwich Parkeston Quay (now Harwich International). It used to depart Liverpool Street at 20:30 connecting passengers to the night Ferry for the Hook of Holland in the Netherlands.
The Boat train saw many types of traction over the years including B1s, B17s, Britannias, Class 40s and Class 86s. However, due to the increase in Car Ferries & Air travel, the Hook Continental was discontinued in 1987.
