Yes, she was originally CP's EMPRESS OF JAPAN of 1930, and was the fastest liner on the Vancouver-Yokohama transPacific route. In WWII she was a troop transport and renamed EMPRESSS OF SCOTLAND. Post-War she served the Liverpool-Montreal route, and was sold to Hamburg-Atlantic Line in 1958, renamed HANSEATIC. Refitted, modernized, emerged with 2 funnels. Very popular cruise ship and liner, she was badly damaged by fire in New York in 1966, and scrapped at Hamburg.
There was an earlier Empress of Scotland (ex-Kaiserin Auguste Victoria of Hamburg-America Line, handed over to GB after WW1 and sold to Canadian Pacific Railway Co in 1921) which burned out and sank at the breakers Hughes, Bolckow & Co, Blyth in 1930. She was raised and broke apart while being moved. Interesting that both ships which carried the same name at some point were finally destroyed by fire.
