Now that one tunnel is closed, what do you do?

You will doubtless have heard by now that a fire has closed one of the twin bores under the English Channel. Eurostar is now operating a much diminished service. So I was very interested to read in today’s Guardian how to do it the old fashioned way. Once upon a time there was through ticketing and reasonably convenient connections between train and boat i.e. a short walk through the customs shed. No more. I wonder if they will get any better- or now that it is all in the hands of competing copmpanies the current shambles will continue until the tunnel is fixed. Inter-modal transfers are not what they used to be.
