Default My first view of the DQ

OK, the attachment is working on this reply, but I had to delete this pix from an earlier posting in order to post it here.. This is the DELTA QUEEN laid up in Rock Island in September 1954. This was her first UMR trip and after the 8 day layup she headed back to Cincinnati rather than go up to St. Paul. She made it to St. Paul in 1955. In those days they did roundtrips, and I believe this was 21 days.
