Good views of her.

Sorry to see her on the demolition slip, the term workhorse was invented for her. Her last trip before retiring saw her come in with all flags flying, quite surreal
Think she was on the Mersey before coming to Blyth, one of those that you never take any notice of until she is gone !
I think she never traded for Stevies as Goldstone unless they bought her for spares for her sister ADDERSTONE who mainly worked out of the Wear and Tyne.
