Title: Woolwich Ferry
Post by: Robert J Smith on June 10, 2018, 03:40:48 pm
Are there any photos yet of the two new ferries being built by Remontowa in Gdansk? apart from on the attached site.

They are replacing the trio of old ferries at Woolwich, London and are due before the end of the year.

Regards

Bob

I've heard that the first of the old ferries is to be towed away for scrap during the next couple of weeks, destination France.
