The category RO/RO is incorrect. This is one of Seatrain's unique railcar carriers, but these ships could only be loaded/unloaded by overhead crane and cradle in the visible gap in the superstructure, not by rolling the railcar on/off through the bow or stern as with conventional railcar ferries.

Hi Tonylast

Ignore magogman's comments, appears he may have been indulging too many illegal substances. I think this is a wonderful shot of shipping of yesteryear. Even fm this part of the world have had an interest in Seatrain as a company that developed into unitised and through transport systems even before the Sea-Land and Matson's. Hopefully there are more shots to follow and don't be discouraged to post more even if ageing may have dimmed the original qualitiy.
