How fantastic to see a picture of this handsome ship. I had virtually forgotten about her!

This is going to sound strange but my brother was Engineer on the Triaster when it was with the BPC. His sons now own a factory in the Chinese city of Taiyuan! truth is stranger than fiction!

Lots of masts, great supserstructure and a big funnel. These are the ships I really love.
