I was on a red funnel a few years back and it was double ended and never turned.

The old Netley Castle certainly was! (old indeed)

The Netley Castle was the first of Red Funnels fleet that didnt need turning and stayed with them til '97.

Thanks for the photo- brings back memories... It was a bit of a tub though! I went on that ship in about 95. A bit different from red eagle!

The earliest ferries I remember were "Cowes Castle" and "Noris Castle", and the high speed service was then run by hydrofoils - Shearwater 3 thru to Shearwarer 6.

I believe all three ferries - Coews Castle, Noris Castle & Netley Castle were all sold to a Croation company. 

You can fine loads of images of them (and others) here: http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/RedFunnel.html

It would be great to see something from the old British Rail days on the Portsmouth Ryde route like the MV Southsea, MV Shanklin or MV Brading or even further back the PS Ryde or from Red Funnel The MV Balmoral or the Vecta.

There is no proposed wightlink addon that I am aware of. I very much doubt it is a strong candidate for the future as it replicates too much what we already have.

I saw the old Netly Castle in the back water of Malta drydock a few years ago!   She was looking very sorry for herself.   Not sure if she was on the way too or the way back to Croatia!   I was taking an old 2500 DWT tanker down to work as a bunker vessel.   I dare say she is looking a bit sorry for herself too by now!

I know this topic is ancient, but on the flickr slideshow above it appears that the Pride of Rotterdam is actually the Pride of Hull. Look at the rear, and it has a blue open deck  ???

Just a prototype model, I guess.   :)

It doesnt matter what it actually is... when you slap on an edited skin, it's the pride of Hull, but in our game now, it's the PoR.
