Yes indeed.The search for either GLENOGLE or GLENFALLOCH in China went on for quite a while but was not successful in order to bring one back to London for permanent display.I would think they are both scrapped but as China seems to be coming more open,might find out definitely.

Wonderfull photo of of wonderfull ship. I loved this class of freighters, when they came regularly toHamburg on the 7o ies. One or 2 of them still were in action in the 90 ies in Chinese waters.

Thanks for the comments,John.Didn/t realise that YANG CHENG actually was in London-that/s where she must have handed over.Thanks indeed for that info.

That picture hits the spot for me Paul! Absolutely wonderful, great shot of a great ship.
I saw her sister as the Chinese Yang Cheng in London's Royal Docks but unfortunately it was in my pre-camera days.
Thanks for such an excellent post.
