Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Yep.

It's also interesting, looking at the picture from "The Cage," to see how different the curvature of those soffits was than most guesses have made them. Exeter's bridge was based pretty directly on Michael McMaster's fan-drawn blueprints, and Mike extrapolated that they were deeply and elegantly concave - as did, I think, Franz Joseph. The original was pretty shallow and flat.
