For 2014 we have various new titles which will be published over the year, including the Ostend Ferry, TransEuropa Years, Folkestone for the Continent 1843-2001, and the SB Ferries. One of the major highlights for 2014 will be the publication of our book on the history of Sealink, written by Matthew Murtland and Richard Seville. The book not only covers the history of this famous ferry company but also looks at where the vessels operated after their careers with Sealink.

We have taken the step to change the grammage and paper quality of the magazine in the light of continued postal increases - we have absorbed the last three postal increases without increasing the cost to our readers. In the light of this we have written to all our regular subscribers explaining the situation, the majority of which have accepted the situation. Obviously there have been some who have been disappointed with the change and are concerned that the quality of the magazine will not be the same in the future. FCR is being printed on standard accepted European quality paper and there is no reason for the quality or production of the magazine to differ from that of its previous editions. Whilst the publishers accept that we did have some photographic issues with the last edition these are being addressed for the summer edition, which should contain high quality pictures as our readers would expect.
