San Francesco Di Paola

4th April 2005, 21:54

For a long time, an old Italian train ferry was berthed in Ostend, where I Live. She left this town under own power in February 2004, arriving in India one month later. Has she been scrapped or is she re-used in the area?

She was built in 1964 as the San Francesca Di Paola and sailed for India as the 'Francesca Di Paola'.
