The Arrow Lakes Lumber Company commissioned the construction of the CR Lamb in 1907 for $23,000. Constructed with a wooden hull, she was 94 feet long and twenty feet wide, with a draught of four feet. She spent more than two and a half decades serving the logging company and residents of the Shuswap Lake before being bought by Captain William Louie. This ship is typical of the many that saw their way around the lakes, rivers and coastal systems of North America at the turn of the 19th century. The model is the latest in our line of Masterclass kits and has outstanding detail for this size model.
We have also included some pre-wired LED’s and a power source to let you light the model with a very scale like appearance and light level. Multiple sheets of laser cut and engraved stabilized Resin Impregnated Board (RIB) for crisp, high resolution detail.
Micro LED lighting kit with prewired micro LED’s for lighting the deck, marker lights, etc. Gott made a great sight gliding through the ice as it headed up the bay of Green Bay abreast of Menominee, MI around 6 PM on March 25, 2011 (the ship is over 10 miles offshore from Menominee). As part of a 2002 Wisconsin DNR directive to rid the state of all "non-indigenous" species, our precious swan was shot to death on Sept.
23, several hunters witnessed a DNR warden, in a motor boat, chasing a mute swan on Lake Noquebay and shoot it several times until it was dead. I understand the need to limit the mute swan growth and range expansion as supported by the US Fish and Wildlife Services, but I don’t understand the need to eliminate the mute swan population, especially this one swan. The next slide show ("Miscellaneous General Photos") contains just 50 photos, but there are many more photos here.Click Here to see all the photos on this page. Steffen also scratch-built this HO scale model of the SteeltonModel Ship - Steelton - the model ship also has fully detailed interior! It was originally serviced by lighthouse keepers from Sherwood Point in Sturgeon Bay, WI; but was later automated by laying an underwater power cable. The building, built in 1886, began its existence as a three-room schoolhouse and in 1915 became the property of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) Boys Club, one of the oldest affiliates of Boys Clubs of America in the country. My Father, who was born in 1906, went to school in that building and later attended the Boys Club as a member in its early days. 18, 2006 look who showed up from under the dockSwan - An old friend arrived in town recently; our swan returned for its sixth straight winter on Dec.

Along with over a foot of snow, winds gusting to over 40 mph piled snow high in both cities; hardest hit were areas along the bay of Green Bay in Menominee.
Does this swan bring back fond memories of Homer (see the "In Memoriam" near the top of this page). They will feed here for a week or two before continuing their flight to their winter home in the Carolinas.
The vessel had two 34 horsepower engines made by the Schaake Machine Works in New Westminster for a gross weight of 192 tons. He ran the boat well into the 1930’s providing cargo carriage, passenger services and even moonlight cruises and dances on-board. Lamb story, Captain Louie who had captained the CR LAMB for 15 years and then bought the CR LAMB and continued service into the 1930's with the boat, was of Chinese decent, but born in Canada. She would be at home on any logging railway or in support as a ferry or cargo boat supporting your railway as part of the extended transportation network. 3D engraved parts, scale rigging, and simple, but good looking railings help you look like you spent hours getting the railings right, but really they won't!.


The ship was testing out its new engines, which were installed at Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay, WI over the winter lay-up period. Yes, it was a warden because he had just checked their licenses and they watched him motor out towards the swan. If the warden knew anything about this particular swan, he’d know that this bird has not had a mate in over seven years and that he lives on the lake, or below the dam (in the Menominee River - added by webmaster) in open water during the winter. After serving the community in that capacity for almost 90 years, the DAR Boys & Girls Club moved into its new facility, the former Roosevelt School in Menominee. I was a member in the 1950's; and then, from the Fall of 1970 until the Spring of 1997, I spent many hundreds of hour as a volunteer staff worker in that building.
This is the latest in the year that I have seen it, and the first time it has been this far down-river.Swan - A nice pose on Mother's Day (May 8)Birdwatching while boatwatching - A swan and a goose pose in front of the Virginiaborg on May 8Egret - This is the first egret I have seen this year.

What a majestic bird!Eagle - This view is cropped from the previous photo and enhanced with a photo-editing program.Duck - This is a cropped and photo-edited photo of a mallard taken in Marinette, WI a couple years ago.
These birds are migrating back up north, and the area known locally as "The Flats" is a stopping off point for them as they head back to the "High Arctic" in Alaska.3 Ducks - One white duck and two mallards in deep blue water near the Stephenson Public Library in Marinette on April 11. The bay of Green Bay also piled up some impressive ice shoves; fortunately the ice piled up well offshore due to a line of earlier ice shoves left over from a Dec. The "Car Plunk" is now sponsored as a fund raiser by the DAR Boys & Girls Club in Menominee. Homer was a constant figure in the lower Menominee River every winter from 2002 to 2006 until it was killed by the Wisconsin DNR in 2007.Mute Swan - Strong winds gave our Mute Swan quite a ride on the Menominee River in between the dams on June 1Mute Swan - Shown here in a trough between the waves! As he was spraying the weeds, he scared up a female mallard in that area that had been sitting on a nest with 9 eggs in it!
He took a lot of flack from government and press when he forced the Waterways commission to keep the opening span bridge working on the Thompson River long after the government had deemed it not necessary for shipping traffic.
The model can even be built to have the paddlewheel rotate if you wish (you supply your own motor), or trim it flush to fit on your layout water surface. The ship continued up the bay and through "Death's Door" (at the tip of Door County) and then headed down Lake Michigan, where they could have headed back to Bay Shipbuilding through the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal had there been any problems . One hunter said that it was “gruesome” because either the warden was a bad shot at close range or the gun he had was inadequate. The old building was sold to a private concern, and was undergoing remodeling at the time of the fire. It was off Harbor Town Marina in Marinette on May 9, 2005.Egret - A closer view of an egret on May 11.
16River Park Campground - Wide view of a popular place to camp along the Menominee River in the city of Menominee, MI (Sept. 11 & 12, 2010 storm (see the Menominee North Pier Lighthouse page for photos of that storm. He didn't hit the duck with the weed killer, so the duck was not harmed, and she quickly returned to the nest.
Lamb was decommissioned in 1936, her hull filled with gravel and now rests underwater in the Thompson River at the end of 8th Avenue in Kamloops BC. He was somewhat of a unspoken legend in these parts, keeping the steamboat working well past its prime. Many thousands of our children have passed through its doors over the years; and, though the building was old when I began my volunteer "work" (believe me - it was a lot more fun than work) there, it was very well utilized and maintained. This is the area of the bay where the main intake is for the Marinette Water Dept.Marinette Water Dept.
He even converted the upper deck of the ship to a dance floor and had bands and parties under the stars on the lake. Marie, MI a couple days later heading for Two Harbors, MN to take on its first load (taconite) of the season, the new engines must be working just fine. It just won't be the same without that historic building there to remind us of what was definitely part of our heritage. It was a beautiful shot, but I missed the top part of the wing, so I did something I don't usually do for photos I post on this site, I photo-edited the missing wing-tip. She had taken those dead weeds and built herself a little "lair" where she is nearly invisible, as she blends in perfectly with the dead vegetation. I went out to take some photos of her today, and was able to get within three feet of her without scaring her off! I don't know how she will raise her brood in this area; it is next to a parking lot next to US-41 with a blacktop alley behind in a fairly heavy traffic area.
