Lots of images you can try to identify today, but I’ll hold any further info until tomorrow.

First . . .  this vessel will be visible and will be an interesting subject of photographs from many points along the Hudson next month,  February.  Clue:  Note the hull  color.

Unrelated to the top foto . . . any guesses about this and

0aaaaaahc2

and this from the same vessel and

0aaaaaahc3

this from the same fleet?   Both vessels are occasional visitors in the sixth boro.

And finally . . . from a secret salt, a foto easy to identify.  My question in whether there’s any news about this incident.

You’ll have some answers tomorrow.

Finally . . . here are some of my favorite ice pics on the Hudson taken a few years back by Paul Strubeck.

And here’s hat’s off to my Canadian cousins . . . if case you missed this late addition to yesterday’s post.

Here was 1.  As a warm up, let’s start with some land models, and easy ones given the clues.  About 4000 of these were built,

about 2000 of these,  and

half a million of these, but of the same era and intended for the watery parts of the planet, there was only

one of these.  Can you identify her?

Excuse the teaser, but I’ve a lot to process here.  I’ll identify this vessel tomorrow, and give proper thanks, but for now, can you guess the vessel bearing this cryptic text?

This house has been on this blog before, as seen from outside.

I’d never imagined a pushbutton version of an engine order telegraph.

If you’ve paid attention to sixth-boro traffic, you may–like me–never have noticed this bell.

And protected by the bulwarks, this deck hardware never caught my attention.

Keep these threads slathered in grease and they might just operate for a century or two.

What lies behind this porthole cover?

Answers tomorrow.

And here . . . I apologize for dropping a ball.  Remember these panels (scroll all the way down) from almost a month ago?  I asked if anyone recognized them?  And there was an identification from “a tugster fan who lives on the East River and remembers when Union Station was a crumbling hulk.”   Union Station it was, and here’s another panel.

East River fan and rememberer, thanks for the answer.
