I s there anyone out there who could send me a side bow and stern view of a typical three island Brisths tramp steam circa 1919-20. A plan view would be good too. This information will be used to make a freeware scenery object for the Train Simulation program Trainz 2006 for placing in harbors (H)

Hi, the attached picture is out of an old book and is an old Three Island Tramp
its not a very good example I'm afraid but should give you an idea. The three Islands are made up from the raised poop at the stern, the middle bridge accom section and the raised f'ocsle although it's not too raised on this example. Anyway hope it helps.

Isn't that a flush decked ship rather than a three island?

Did you go through Tramp Steamers on the Main page?
You may find few vessels here incl. Harmodius. That one is a 3 island vessel built in 1919.

If you can get hold of a copy of British Ocean Tramps by P.N.Thomas either Vol.1or 2There are plenty of plans,photos and drawings of tramps therein..Alternatively try Deans Marine,The Old School,Farcet,Peterborough.PE7 3AN.who make a kit to build an old tramp of the type you require.They may let you have just the plan.Worth a try.Best of luck.Pierhead Jumper.
