No, that's Olympic. No pics of Titanic's propellers exist.

 

Titanic had a three bladed central prop so most experts thing anyway https://www.encyclop...-propeller.html

Thanks Hooli, that's a fascinating link. Is there anything in the theory Olympic and Titanic were switched?

That theory has been proved wrong many times, too many differences in the ships etc

 

I've joined a few FB pages about old liners, it's surprising what you can fill your time with!

Which is why most "Titanic" photos can be de-bunked even quite blurred and distant shots.  

 

Family legend had it that my Gran had a photo of it passing the end of her father's farmyard (which bordered a stretch of the Solent) and she often referred to it.   Never found the bugger though......

Quite possible though. I believe the route went Southampton, Frogshire, Ireland & off to the deep blue yonder.

Check out the prices on this offer.
Had my pen out today ready to sign up for a white RS1600, a sapphire blue 3000GT with bvr, and a daytona yellow Mex.
Then looked at the last line. Aaaaaah.

I was 4 years old.

The station is Stafford.

 

I don't know specifically what happened here, but I guess the Ital's dropped off the back of a car transporter (liner) train.

Thanks, i shared it on the Marina and Ital FB page and a few people was asking, i think it was decided that it was Salford and they were very early 1980 models coming from the factory that had come off, someone said they are pre-1981 cars as they have side repeaters on the wings which were dropped the following year.

Those gantries are Stafford.    Interesting photo, though!   Looks like a third Ital behind the first two and that train is very close, too.   Did anybody get to the rest of the story?   

  

Very relaxed situation going on there, too - not a H&S man in sight!
