Default DQ at Cannelton & Memphis 10/08

Here's are links to two more video clips from the DQ's last cruise.

Delta Queen at Cannelton Lock & Dam on Vimeo

Delta Queen's last night with passengers on Vimeo

In the first one, she's locking through at Cannelton, IN. I was about a mile away on a hill on the KY side of the river. There was a historical marker there that described Capt. John W. Cannon, who built and raced the "Robert E. Lee" with the "Natchez" in 1870, and that he was born in the valley below. It makes a nice contrast and opening for the sequence.

The second one is the departure from Memphis on Oct. 30th as she made her final overnight run. The next morning, passengers departed and she was officially out of service. As she turns into the sunset, the river is almost still. A crowd of well wishers waves and the calliope plays The Tennessee Waltz and Dixie.

These are on Vimeo, not You Tube. I went to Vimeo because it allows me to post a higher quality video than YT. You may need a high speed connection to view them.
