Loading containers for North America


Last Saturday saw the annual Friends of the Ferries River and Dock Cruise, along the Mersey and then through the Liverpool dock system. The Atlantic Conveyor was in the Royal Seaforth Dock loading containers for her journey across the Atlantic to Halifax, New York and Baltimore before returning with more containers.

I never knew there was a friends of the ferries Les
Les Auld: Not many people do know that Bill, they do tend to keep it quiet. Thanks for the comment.
This really does give the atmosphere of a busy dockside Les.
Les Auld: Indeed so Brian, thanks for the comment.
It has a long journey ahead of it. I wonder what is in the containers smile
Les Auld: Anything and everything Linda, thanks for the comment.
'Atlantic Conveyor' for some reason rings bells, but not sure why. Very good shot of the loaded vessel.
Les Auld: Thanks John, the previous Atlantic Conveyor was sunk by two exocet missiles during the Falklands War twenty odd years ago.
It opens ones eye to see all this going on Les..Good capture.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, they do turn these ships around very fast.
