Footnotes

  • PS Glen Sannox was built by J&G Thompson of Clydebank for the Glasgow & South Western Railway Company and launched in 1892. Intended to compete with the Caledonian Steam Packet Co. steamers, she was was the largest railway owned passenger steamer in the UK and with a top speed of 19.23 knots, slightly faster than their competitor's Duke of Hamilton. Performance came at a cost however and although employed largely in the Arran Is. service, she was requisitioned by the Admiralty in 1915 as a Troop carrier in the Channel. Found to unsuitable for the Channel seas, she was returned North and was transferred to the London Midland & Scottish Railway Co. in 1923 but went to the breakers in 1925.

    It is believed that this model was originally conceived for pond use. Three sections of the deck lift off to access the interior, but no power plant is installed.
