Great job Capt Mike and crew!

I am so glad to hear that steam is again up and circulating thru the ol Gal!

Soon that familiar, mournful whistle will break out into the night as a call to all announcing the Queen has returned to rule her rivers.

I can't be there to participate. To all who will, I can't wait to see the postings here and look forward to relishing in your excitement.

Steam calliopes and Steam whistles are once again to reign on the rivers of America. Sure beats the blat of an air horn, or the throb of a diesel boat as it passes.

It is the beginning of more great days to come on the rivers of America.


P.S. The Str. Mississippi Queen is outside my window again (really). I think I'll play hookey from work in a few minutes and go hide down there for awhile!

I watched her come in last night (12:00 am) and watched the fleet (4) of trucks from Somerset come down and fuel her. Yes, I do need a hobby!
