Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There is an intermodal terminal at Barking, accessible from the UIC gauge High Speed One, and there are projects to use it at last with cross-Chunnel trains too. I reported in Rail News Bloggings that both the Modalohr system (which only carries the semi-trailers but is actually faster to load and more weight-efficient than RoLa) and a more traditional semi-trailer piggyback car (currently in use along the Rhine corridor) got permission to run through, and there are specific plans with dates for regular service at least for the second.
