About to Dock

About to Dock

The Car Float is about to dock on my work table. The old Milwaukee SW-1 that subsequently served the Seattle & North Coast RR and Oympic RR has been re-painted for its current life on the Ballard Terminal Railroad.
I believe locos never go onto the barge because they're too heavy for the ferry slip. They shove cars onto and off it by using one or two 'handles' (usually gondolas or flat cars) so engine can remain on land...
Belated missing statement: Other than that, it's a nice lookin modeling job !! M
