The Comet Returns!

On Sunday 5 June, Comet was successfully returned to Port Glasgow Town Centre following a year long renovation. There is an excellent online gallery of the move back on Inverclyde Now.

Over the year, a team of Future Jobs employees at Inverclyde Community Development Trust have been following the process, producing a documentary which follows the history of the original Comet and the creation and refurbishment of the replica. The documentary will be premiered in Port Glasgow Town Hall as part of Doors Open Day 2011 in September.

Over on the Tales of the Oak blog, you can hear a recording of a ballad which was written following the wreckage of the original Comet.
