An alphabetical list of ships shown on this page is shown below. The Table beneath gives links to complete history pages on selected individual ships. Below the table is a Fleet List in chronological order.
This page is devoted to postcards and photographs of the Fishguard services of British Railways (BR), which was formed in 1948 with the ships from former LMS, LNER, SR and GWR fleets. The following ships transferred to BR from the GWR on the Fishguard Route:-

Great Western (3) 1934-1967
St Andrew (2) 1932-1977
St David (3) 1947-1969
St Patrick (3) 1947-1972
British Railways was rebranded British Rail in 1965, and new corporate colours and logo were introduced. In 1968, an Act of Parliament separated the shipping interests of British Rail into a new division, for which the marketing name Sealink was adopted in 1970. In 1979, the ownership of vessels was transferred to Sealink UK Ltd, in preparation for the privatisation of the railway fleet. In 1984, Sealink was acquired by Sea Containers Ltd, becoming Sealink British Ferries. After a lengthy battle, Stena Line completed a hostile takeover of Sealink in 1990, the company then being known as Sealink Stena Line until later absorption into the Stena Fleet.
