Northern Ranger in Lewisporte Loading

This past weekend the Northern Ranger arrived in Lewisporte to load freight for Labrador. The passsenger service is finished on the Labrador Coast, where the Ranger served 30 years. The Northern Ranger and the Astron were true work horses, and served the coast well. It will be sad to see them go.
Also in Lewisporte was the Legionnaire, it arrived Oct 30, 2018 for maintenance, she left this morning heading for Bell Island. The Capt Earl W Windsor was there as well, I heard the Windsor was sold although thats not confirmed.
