S.S. John Brown steam school

This looks neat:

I've been reading about WWII era Liberty Ships and the Brown is one of two operating survivors out of fleet of 2700+. It also served as a maritime training high school for the NYC Board of Education.

Now that's pretty cool.

Frisco has the S.S. Jeremiah O'brien that is still operational and gets taken out hardly ever, but I don't think they have any kind of a program like the Brown has going.

I've always admired the triple expansion steam engines in these ships.  8)
