There was also a rail/air passenger service, with a special branch line into Le Touquet airport. A railcar for Paris Nord came right up to the plane. That sounds like the route Peter used.

Not that sophisticated. When I did my trip, the nearest railhead was at Etaples town, with no obvious way to reach it. There were people using the air bridge the way it was intended, with cars, and I did a quick canvas as they unloaded, getting a lift into the town from a nice bunch of chaps in a Land Rover, who dropped me off at the railway station. Where, with comms and computers yet to be invented, they didn't know that they shouldn't sell me a Paris-Geneva ticket. That was a real stroke of luck.
