This photo brings back so many memories for me as a teenager. Visited the old man on the BC quite a few times when it discharged in the UK, mostly Newport and Glasgow if memory serves. Can still remember the noise of them hatch covers closing and the rattle of the iron ore as it fell out of the grabs and hit the deck. Also always loved the smell of the engine room through the skylight and was always amazed that no matter what was being cooked in the galley it always smelt the same. Happy days.(Thumb)
