"HI,

I can't post to your forum but perhaps you can let those interested know there is a controllable video camera located across the street from the park where the ship is docked in Fort Madison, Iowa.

The address is
http://www.livetrains.com/plugins/cam/default.asp

Once on the page you can take control of the camera and move it to the right and see the ship, the old casino boat and the replica fort.

The camera is used for watching trains as this is a main line for freight and passenger rail. Not very good for night but OK for daylight.

I was able to take the tour while the ship was docked in Moline (I live in Davenport) and will probably stop by this weekend since I will be visiting relatives in my hometown of Fort Madison.

Jon Anderson

Those of us who live away and can't get to the ship for the cruise, greatly appreciate your kindness in sharing the link with us!

Jon.. Email the webskipper (the link is on the homepage) and we'll see if we can get it set up so you can post!

I can't see the picture.
I get the web page fine but where the picture should be is just a white square with a little red X in the upper left corner.
