Coastlines CL-B01 Oil Refuelling Barge, Southampton Harbour, 1938 onwards 1/1250
A 1/1250 scale resin model of the oil refuelling barge used by transatlantic liners at Southampton by Coastlines models CB-01.
The master maker came across the plans by accident. The result is a unique, detailed model of a barge which would save on turn-round time at the transatlantic Ocean Terminal. Refuelling would usually take place on the off-side whilst stores were loaded from the quayside.
Overall length of model is 3.2cm
Displayed alongside a model of a Trans-Atlantic Liner in a dock scene, it adds a sense of scale to the tableau.
