Lackawanna Tug   Oil painting of a tug boat on an archival canvas panel


A DL&W railroad tug moves through a lifting fog.   In busy New York Harbor, and prior to the availability of radar, navigation in the fog required the utmost care.  Many of the eastern railroads once had extensive carfloat operations in New York Harbor.  Railroad tug boats were built with an extra high wheelhouse to provide improved visibility when moving a float loaded with rail cars.
