Sometime during 1988, the contract for disposal was signed in November 1987, with the engine works first demolished, by summer of 1988 there was nothing left anywhere, sad.

Bother..... it does not matter what I do to try and edit this one, there seems to be the general bug in the SN site, and in every posting with an apostrophe it causes the site to insert a back-slash. The choice is either leave it, or take out the '

Very sad to see the demise of another British yard, which I believe was the oldest. I spent a happy and educational 3 months in Scotts' in 1961 during the building of the Deido. I wholly agree with Tonga, they were indeed a nice bunch of people.

Nice to hear good things about my old alma mater!
Served my eng. apprenticeship there from 1951-56, and in Eng. DO in mid sixties. Happily out before the run down and demise.

Japottinger - I'm sorry for giving your photograph a new name - it was the only way I could get away from the floating apostrophe and still keep it readable. :)

Tonga, I've found that if I go in and edit a posting, I can get rid of the extraneous slashes manually by positioning the mouse pointer to the right of each slash and back spacing.
Never tried it on a picture caption, but I think it should work there also.
