Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ground effect aircraft can have twice the fuel efficiency for short hops, where jets waste a lot of fuel climbing to cruising altitude and descending again.

And of course they've been made as flying boats, so a dockside terminus station in Liverpool and Dublin would give central city stations on both sides.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
