    Would rather a list of Paddle Steamers than a clutter of individual Tags.
    List names in alphabetical order.

    Other PS Tags, as of today, include:

    * Paddle Steamer (PS) (link full name to abbreviation)

    * PS Trafalgar
    * PS Tyro (1200 tags)
    * PS Ulonga

    Q: Where is Tag for "PS Renmark" or "PS Weroona"?

    A: Due to a limitation of the Trove Tag Search function, Trove cannot list low-frequency Tags such as "PS Renmark"
    R: Reason: Trove can only list 3000 of the most frequently used tags.
    R: "PS" matches many false tags such as "potato croPS"
    R: "PS " (with a trailing space) is a better search string.
    R: "PSr" would have been a better search string, but it is too late to change now.
