Barge of the Month – February – sb Niagara

Today we start a new series with a page called Barge of the Month.

Thanks to the agreement of Richard Walsh, who designed our source, we shall be using the splendid pictures and information from the SSBR Calendar which was published in 2017.   We shall start with February’s barge, sb Niagara.
