A Boat & A Train
Last night we were in the Soo driving our
grandchildren down Portage Street to see the fountain, the Locks and to drive to West Pier looking for boats. We had a double-treat.
The Arthur M. Anderson was coming into the Locks but there was also a train waiting to cross from Canada. The train bridge lowered into place across the water after the Anderson had moved into the Locks. So the kids saw both a boat and a train.
During the afternoon we saw the Edward L. Ryerson go up bound. We followed her into the Soo where she was met by several formal salutes. We are always happy to see the Ryerson.
Also observed on the river Sunday was the Buffalo and the Saginaw.
