Steel Trains and a Bob-Lo Boat

Unread post by TrainWatcher »

Went out for a bit today. I was hoping to get the Algosar on what is her last trip on the Lakes, but unfortunately, she was muttling around in northern Lake Erie too long, so I hope to get her on her downbound trip. Otherwise, here are a few frames from today, enjoy!

Nice pictures James. Looking at that Boblo Island boat brought back some memories i remember back in 1978 taking the boat to Boblo Island there was a Disco Dance floor on there no kidding and i was on a field trip with my sixth grade class and i never will forget the site of my sixth grade teacher dancing to disco music. She had some good moves.

I recall many trips on the Bob Lo boats. Anyone remember Capt BobLo. He was a midget, dressed in a Capts outfit, and welcomed everyone aboard the boats. Good times.

Whats wrong with the short hood on the 5056. I can't tell from the pic, but it looks dented, or something hanging on it.

Saw that on the news tonight. Sad. Had a lot of fun on that boat growing up. Seems like maybe a little suspicious. Now they can just scrap the hull.
