Default Fall River Steamboat Models

I'm delighted to be part of this forum. Inparticular, to share my models to those who appreciate our past relative to steamboats.

Recently, I presented images of the Hudson River Day Line. Today I'm presenting images of the Fall River Line vessels.

There have been many articles and books written about these "floating palaces", but few models have existed on them. Relative to history, many travelled this famous line sailing New York's Long Island Sound from New York to Boston via Fall River, MA. The Line was a combination steamboat and railroad connection that operated between 1847 and 1937.

These models will give some scope of these vessels as to the accuracy of their appearance as dated. Do enjoy.
