Very nice ray,  almost looks like your barge almost got the better of your iron horse.

Thank you for sharing these super pictures of your Iron Horse pulling it's
little guts out and, slow but sure, winning the big sawdust task at hand.

I watched Seaspan chip barges all of my younger years coming in and
going out from Bellingham bay at the now gone pulp mill. Lots of
memories. . .thank you Ray.
