I had some great times on the CIP run on Ellerman's City of Eastbourne in 1968. Discharged in Halifax never thinking that, six years later, I would be living there!

CIP became CCL with the pterodactyl's footprint you see to the left (Canadian City Line) to tie in with the Ellerman City Liners brand in the UK.

The logo and service was a partnership with Ellerman's Canadian ggents, McLean Kennedy who in fact own the logo
