Could be neat to see.

I saw on a sailing schedule that the 'American Queen' is departing Pittsburgh on August 10 for a cruise so will at least be here that day & I assume before too.

I couldn't find much of any other info, but I'm guessing given the ships size it will dock either along the north shore or station square as i can't see it making it under some of the other bridges.

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
American Queen is said to be the largest river steamboat ever built. The ship was built in 1995 and is a six-deck recreation of a classic Mississippi riverboat, built by McDermott Shipyard for the Delta Queen Steamboat Company

Beautiful steamer.

Steamship building was one of Pittsburgh's first big industries, c. 1820-60. They built them on the Mon near what is today the jail and Parkway East.

It should do battle with the giant rubber duck.

I want to go on a cruise on that! Seeing the country by river, and all the river towns, would be fascinating.
