Fairlift with locos

Another Dutch ship sailed from Halifax today. This one is the heavy lift ship Fairmast. Loading a dozen locomotives is child's play for this ship, which can make a combined lift of 1,000 tonnes, using both derricks.

It and sister ship Jumbo Challenger are in the D1000 class, but Jumbo Shipping has a new J1800 class, which can do combined lifts of 1800 tonnes!

All this and more can be found on Jumbo's website:

In the background is CCGS Sir William Alexander anchored in Mcnab's Cove, at he trot buoys of the navy's static sound range.
