Interesting development with the vessel "TS Queen Mary" in October the ownership of the vessel passed to the charity that is looking to bring it back to the Clyde in 2016. Their CGI cover photo on facebook suggests that they are looking to berth it South of the Finneston crane beside the squint bridge.
Could be a use for one of the Govan Graving docks if they could house it out of water in one of them. Then maybe look for another couple old Clyde built ships to put into the other two docks as permanent tourist attractions, a bit like the cutty sark is.

So pleased that this steamer is being restored. It was the first Clyde Steamer I traveled on from Glasgow to Rothesay in 1961.After that I did trips on all the steamers. So sad they were scrapped,I think they would make a fortune today.
