Yes, it's a link. I've just checked it and it works fine for me. Is it not working for you?
I'm not sure what hotel and bridge post you are referring to.

So why doesn’t the UK have any to Europe?The sleepers intended for that market never entered service, and some of them are now operating on VIA between Montreal and Halifax. After they were built it was concluded that at fares competitive with air fares prevalent in Europe at the time the trains couldn't cover their costs if booked to capacity, so they never entered service.
Britain is missing out on the boom in sleeper trains. But the biggest obstacle isn’t logistics, it’s bureaucracy...
“And a little child shall lead them.” Many of you will recall that this is a Biblical quote from Isaiah read at Christian Sunday Advent services last month just prior to Christmas. And this made me think of the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg (now Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” and recently nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize) and which, per chance, occurred at the same time I received an e-mail from a fellow rail advocate who expressed his rabid climate denial, using such words as “I haven’t drank the climate change Kool Aid.”.My days of traveling overseas are "done for". The worldwide COVID "all clear" won't sound until early '22, and I will be 81yo. No point joining some "rolling nursing home" being loaded on a bus or train, "bag pull is 7A", and all the rest. During my likely final overseas journey, I met a gal from South Carolina at the hotel in Salzburg being loaded aboard the bus. I asked her "where's next?". She had no idea.
