I suspected as much when I saw this train . . . although I was quite surprised by the tug out front.

I hadn’t seen Yemitzis under way for a few years now.   Yemitzis dates from 1954, launched as Pennsylvania RailRoad’s Philadelphia, hull 227.  Here‘s the link. . .  but scroll about 2/3 through to get to PRR tugs info.   So Yemitzis is one of the oldest hulls working here.  Tailing tug Robert IV is 1975.

No, the newest hull is the black box between them, hull #92 just launched at Senesco, destined to be part of a drydock at Caddell’s.

Meanwhile , I’m happy to see Yemitzis out and about working again.

Does anyone have a foto of her as PRR’s Philadelphia?
