At Home

USA citizens arriving at Southampton aboard the SS "United States", or the RMS "Queen Elizabeth" or the RMS "Queen Mary" from New York and disembarking at the Ocean Terminal must have felt very much 'at home' when they saw the classic Vulcan- or Porter-built 0-6-0T Switchers at work in the Port! In the mid-1960s they were in the process of replacement by BR's class 07 Diesel shunters so future arrivees might not feel quite so at home!
