mv. Mary Ellen Jones

Shortly after we saw the mv. West Virginia at the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam on Saturday, Adam and I found the mv. Mary Ellen Jones waiting downstream. Both are owned by Madison Coal & Supply, and both are from the Dravo 3200 series, but Adam noticed differences in them -- the pilothouse windows, the lower deck windows, the radar masts and the smokestacks, among others. Oh, to be young and observant again.

Here are three photos I made:

The Mary Ellen Jones and West Virginia have nothing in common except they were both built by Dravo. The Mary Ellen is a bigger boat but the West Virginia has more hp.
