History

The S.S Hudson Sound, was one of the many steam colliers that sailed the Thames, supplying the huge demand for coal, to feed the power stations of London. In between this task, she ran many sea voyages from London, to the ports of North Africa, Finland and Canada. She was eventually sold to a Panamanian Company. This hard working and proud little ship is still giving good service and was last seen transiting the Panama Canal, resplendent in a lilac and black colour scheme.
