The video from RESCUE 137 has the position …

Comment posted BBC news piece with helicopter footage of derailed freight train on West Highland Line by Lundavra.

The video from RESCUE 137 has the position of the helicopter displayed at the bottom of the frame. I converted it to NGR and looked up on the map as none of the news reports gave the position. It is about 2.5 miles from Fersit so about 2 miles from the nearest road (or track) by the East end of the dam.

    I see that QM2 is not a ‘Motor Vessel’, it has the honorary prefix of RMS for Royal Mail Ship (not that it carries any mail except the passengers postcards).

    The other two Queens are just MS, Motor Ships.

    a. trans. To secure (a ship, boat, or other floating object) in a particular place by means of one or more chains, ropes, or cables fastened to the shore or to anchors.

    So it can mean held by anchors.

    Though the RN XDO post at Gallanach did its best to increase the clearance in WWII. :-)
  • QM2 moored off Oban
    Towns like cruise ships to visit but it seems to be just for the status, the tourists like to see them but the amount of revenue must be negligible. I remember being in Tobermory during one of LOTG’s first visits, it arrived late afternoon but most of the shops closed as normal at 1700h leaving lots of wealthy Americans wandering around with few places to spend their money and I suspect most of the ones that did stay open were incomers.

    Who called Glen Massan a liner? The news item has ‘a marriage of the classic liner and the modern mega-caravan’ which is obviously referring to the QM2.
