Regrettably in the 1980s dock strikes were still a fairly regular occurrence.When Southampton took action the large container ships diverted to Greenock.This was taken on a grey December day in 1981 as HAPAG/S FRANKFURT EXPRESS berthed.These were the giants of their day at 50000grt.

The giant are always more great .
But the line and profile of the the 1950 -80s cargo ships are insuperable!!!!!

Unusual for a Container ship these days, the Frankfurt Express has retained her name throughout her 23 year life.Built in 1981 she has a gross tonnage of 57,540
