On reading this I was intrigued with your quirkyness for odd ships - I have recently been watching the world one series on the Smithsonian channel, and today watched the Normandy program for WII, this popped up and thought of the train ship. further in this sequence of shots was the rail waggons being unloaded.

More look of a converted liner to something similar to a ro-ro ferry.
