Hi 3Railway,
Yes ex Henry Robb in Leith, doing a history on the yard at http://leithbuiltships.blogspot.com as there is, as someone says little shipbuilding left in this country.

Welcome 3railway, you've found a great site.

The shipyard where I served my time is still going, Fairfields in Govan on the Clyde, as is the old Yarrows also in Glasgow, both building warships only now. Fergusons in Port Glasgow still struggles on too.
