During the 1970's when
the Antrim Princess and Ailsa Princess were on the Stranraer to Larne
service, Sealink took the opportunity to brand it “The Princess
Route”. Here Antrim
Princess is caught just as she arrives at Stranraer in July 1983.
Along with the rest of the British Rail ferry fleet, Galloway Princess
was sold to Sea Containers in 1985.
She is seen here arriving at Stranraer in July 1984, with the
British Rail logo removed from her funnels in preparation for the
Above right: Stena Galloway wearing Sea Containers
livery basks in a hazy shade of winter in December 1992 at Stranraer.
Although Stena Line bought the Sealink ferry fleet in 1991, they
didn’t repaint the vessels into corporate colours until 1995.
