TSS Cambria was a twin screw steamer cargo vessel operated by the London and North Western Railway from 1889 to 1894.[1]

History[edit]

She was built by Cammell Laird for the London and North Western Railway in 1889.

She was one of the smallest ships operated by the railway and she doesn't appear to have survived for long. Her fate is unknown, but she must have been replaced by 1897 as a new Cambria was launched.
