Thanks for your posts on this! Hard to make out, but on the brochure it does list the PRIDE OF THE RIVER and ISLETON as making several stops , and I can make out ..."and way landings." on the brochure. I had always been under the same impression as you, that the KING and QUEEN were the "express" boats, with the idea being to lure folks back to the river by giving them more luxury and avoiding the multiple stops with their attendant longer run times.

Question: would that fare have included meals and room, or was that just the "deck passage" fare? Surely they could not charge the same for a room with no bath as one of the better, larger rooms with one?
