Steam Dredger CLEARWAY

Hi Guys, I built this model of Clearway many years ago, I went up to WHITEHAVEN and videoed the vessel, also took lots of still pictures.
I drew my own drawings and built the model, she is 57 inches long.

Great model, was she broken up at St Davids on the Forth? If so I have a photo of her there.

Hi Binus and Japottinger lovely model I live in Whitehaven and the Clearway was always to be seen grabbing between the piers day and night depending on the tide.When Iwas akid she used to have a steam crane but changed to a Priestman diesel sometime in the 60s. She was scraped down in Millom and here engines are now in a Norwegian coastal ship. regards Clive
