My trodvang.

Good evening Gentlemen,
I'm looking for some help. I spent the summer of 1956 aboard my dads ship in drydock in Antwerp.
One of the ships that was in dock at the same time was a Norwegian called Trodvang or Trudvang.
I guess she was about 3000 grt (ish). Engines aft bridge amidships.
I have searched in vain for photo or info about her.
Does anyone know a website that I might look into, maybe specialising in Scandinavian ships of that era?
Regards,
Peter

Thank you so much for that info. I was beginning to think hat I may have imagined it. Got the tonnage a bit wrong!

When she in 1959 was renamed STARFIGHTER, she became the first vessel in what later became the large, international Star Shipping Group (A/S Billabong). Well known for their blue vessels with gantry-cranes.
