World transport history
Mr Palmer has named his company Blue Star Line, totally unrelated to the original company which was owned by the Vestey family and only ceased as a shipping company in 2002 after nearly 100 years. As to whether this venture will prove a sucess remains to be seen,will we see other great liners emerge as replica from China? One thing about the Titanic, there has been a strong theory that White Star Line switched the ships and it was in fact the sister ship Olympic which sank, as she had had severe damage caused by a collision a year or two earlier to her stern and shafts and the Line was facing bankruptcy, so used the older vessel for what was meant to be a maiden voyage, with full intentions of causing the accident at sea. There are lot more clues to this which suggest it could well be the biggest deception in maritime history.
