Norway To Breakers??

As reported on 12.28.05. there are rumors that a final sale and disposition of the SS Norway to breakers has come to pass. This has been preliminarily reported at www.maritimematters.com which has a sadly accurate record with regards to ships and their ends. I am sure I am not alone in heaving a great sad sigh about the passing of yet another classic liner to the Indian beaches.

While I wish she could be saved, I do realize the feasibility of such a venture is difficult and expensive. The Queen Mary's fate hangs in the balance as well, and she is largely restored or original compared to the Norways heavy reconstruction.

I do hope that I can get to either Malaysia or India before she is just a heap of scrap to lay my eyes on her ONE LAST TIME.

Any new or different info welcomed and appreciated .
Happy New Year

Sad end to the last of the great French Transatlantic liners.

Unlike the Dutch with Rotterdam, the French had the opportunity to buy Norway but made the excuse that removal of asbestos was too expensive.
