This is a little something I've been working on these past few weeks, the Tugboat Cornell which was built in 1949 for the Lehigh Valley Railroad to move car ferries in New York Harbor. Kind of a best of both worlds for me as in addition to being a ship fan I'm a huge train nut.

Lovely work on tug, especially I like the "fenders". I also agree with the above, about the lack of tugs, that is.

Nice work, not quite SB standard shading but it looks very nice overall. The fenders are particularly good.

As a matter of fact, I’ve already started work on her larger West Coast cousin – the ocean going tug Hercules of 1907. In the later half of her service live, she was employed by Western Pacific Railroad to pull railway car floats across San Francisco Bay.
