New Ship: Eaglescliffe Hall

I've based this new ship (both versions, bulker and lumber vessel) in the old and small british vessel SS Eaglescliffe Hall, which served as a lake bulker (it has a typical laker hull) but was claimed during Second World War to transport different goods all around the UK. She returned to the lakes in 1959 and sunk in 1961 while serving as lumber barge near Vancouver.

The real specifications for this ship are (taken from
  • Length: 75 m
  • Beam (~"width"): 13 m
  • Draught (~"height"): 6 m
  • Gross tonnage: N/A metric tons
  • Max. speed: N/A
  • Engine power: N/A

After a bit of work using blender, these are some results (click to enlarge):

This ship has been coded into Simutrans as an old bulk carrier, which has to fill the timeline of first half of the 20th century. It has also been painted a lumber barge version, which covers the same period.
