Travel-and-Leisure The Fort McMurray historical society is on a mission to develop a Marine Park Museum, where they will showcase five ships. The Marine Park Museum occupies 4-acres on Clearwater Drive, which is the original site of the shipyards, and the only one left in Alberta. The ships that are showcased in the Marine Park Museum were vital to the transportation of freight headed North along the Athabasca and Clearwater rivers. The ships travelled North every spring after the breakup of the ice on the rivers. Freight and passengers were transferred from the railway to these boats to go up North. The ships and trains were operated by Northern Alberta railways, but then there was an amalgamation that took place, and after they were operated by Canadian National up until river service ended. The historical society’s goal is to tell the historic story of northern river transportation: dredging, channel marking, and freight transfer. Here is some information on each of the five ships that will be showcased at the Marine Park Museum, leave a copy of this article in your Fort McMurray apartment rental, and refer to it before you visit this historic site in the making. The Radium Scout sailed North each summer up the Athabasca and Clearwater rivers, sometimes even reaching up as North as the Arctic Circle. It weighs about 75 tons and is about 48 ft in length, and 12 ft 6" in width. It was first built in 1946 by Standard Iron and Engineering Works of Edmonton. It pushed barges at the Clearwater docks and down the Athabasca River to Lehman’s Landing, which was eight miles downstream. The Radium Scout was capable of pushing an ultra-heavy 400 ton barges, up to 120 ft long. A decade later, it was modified so that it could handle larger barges of up to 600 tons and 150 ft long. This boat has been relocated to Heritage Park at 1 Tolen Drive. The Miskanaw was an inland supply vessel, that was built in 1958. It weight a whopping 104 tonnes, and The Miskanaw Barge is a flat-bottomed boat. It is important to note the differences between a barge and a ship; a barge’s primary use is for carrying cargo. They are not independent boats or vessels, they must be tugged or towed by another naval vessel in the water. The reason that barges are flat-shaped at the bottom, is so that they can carry more cargo. The Dredge 250 played a vital role in dredging in the historic Northern river transportation. Dredging is the excavation and removal of material in the bottom of a body of water. The process of dredging creates spoils, which is excess material that must be carried away from the area that was dredged. The McMurray is a large vessel, with a name to represent Fort McMurray, was a critical part of Northern river transportation. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
