    Memories of the DELTA QUEEN - preferably pre 1990

    As Jim pointed out, this topic is a Facebook group and is very active with wonderful pictures, memories, comments about the DELTA QUEEN in an era not many today know. Dale Flick has been posting informative items particularly relating to the DQ and Cincinnati. Capt. Don Sanders has led the postings from the crew world from about 1965 on. I've tossed in a thing or two, and we've heard from many former crew, but few passengers so far. So here's .orgers' very own DQ pre 1990s thread! I was planning to post 3 pictures, but I'm getting no response when I click on 'manage attachments'. Sorry, but you all post away and enjoy!!!

    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.
