HANNAH pushing barge CBC 4507 carrying a load of 875,000 pounds preparing to enter firs door Beauharnois locks on the St-Lawrence Seaway near Montreal; very risky task; that big kind of boiler used in distilliation process was built in Spain then ship by boat to Montreal port; there they put that thing on a barge to an unknow destination????.

Yes Sir, 35, 000 moving targets on the street of Montreal; that day lot of streets are close to traffic; that makes a lot of car drivers a little bit mad that particular day.... Fortunately, it happens only once in a year and like you i love the female cyclists in the Spandex suits and it is the best occasion to fill your eyes wit those nice things!!!!! gently moving from left to right. Like that Day :-D :-D :-D :-D
:lol: :lol:

Hi my friend Magogman! I was almost sure that you would know where that big thing was going! As i can see i was RIGHT!
Iam very proud to had been standing where Magogman has stood before. When i was there, i feel strange for a few minutes. Probably the feeling of the shadow of Greatness!
I was in Montreal that week-end to participate to the Montreal Tour de l'Ile on bycicle! We were almost 35,000 cyclists rolling on together that funny sundy!
See you, greetings, Robert08 :-D :-D :-D

Salut Martin, voyons je n'étais pas si loin que cela; à peine 5 h 30 de route après avoir réussi à sortir de Montréal, évidemment! Le qualificatif de monstre que tu donnes à cet impressionnant objet est pile dans le mille! J'étais à Montréal pour participer au Tour de l'ILe à vélo et dans la journée de samedi, avec mon frère, nous sommes allés aux écluses de Ste-Catherine et Beauharnois et c'est là que nous avons eu droit à ce convoi exceptionnel! Une chance inouï? Je te ferai parvenir par courriel un petit vidéo du spectacle!
À plus Robert :-D :-D

Bonjour Robert,

Belle image de ce monstre de 750 t. Vous étiez loins de chez vous ?

The destination is not "unknown". at least to Magogman who knows all, sees all.
Indiana Harbor is its destination. That is, as you might imagine, in the state of Indiana although just barely. It is almost on the Illinois boundary and is in a huge industrial district at the south end of Lake Michigan, in the Chicago metropolitan area.

When you took that photo you were standing where Magogman has stood before so therefore you were standing in the shadow of greatness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it summer up there yet? :-D :lol:
