SS Shieldhall


Sludge Disposal Vessel, UK, 1955

SKU: PS26 Categories: ,


Shieldhall was launched in 1955 and was used to carry sewage sludge from the Glasgow sewage works out to the off-shore dumping grounds. She has since been retired and is now operated as a working, preserved steam vessel, based in Southampton. The model shows Shieldhall as she appears now (with separate options for the earlier light grey colour scheme or the current black colour scheme) – but a conversion set is also available to show her in her as-built appearance.
