New Tugboat for N (and Z)--the Edna G.

I've been building, on commission, a model of the Edna G., a 108' tug that plied the Great Lakes for many years, and is still open (although I do not know if it still steams or diesels). Due to my brain fart, I drew and built it in Z before realizing that it was meant to be N, so it will be available in both scales. Excuse the tape on the stern--this is an in-progress shot. These will be available as built-ups or kits that, unlike some of my larger ships, require only a modicum of kit building experience. I have this and three larger ships to finish before looking at how to produce this, but it is a definite.

The Edna G (former duluth Missabe and Iron Range) is very much alive. It resides in Two Harbors, Minnesota and can be toured. Although it is not used any more, it looks like they could fire it up and sail away. If you are in the area don't miss it. (Added bonus, DMIR Yellowstone is parked nearby)

Yes, both are in easy walking distance:

The Yellowstone is under the greenish roof left hand side off the station.
