Trillium coming out of Port Colborne Drydock at Ramey's Bend after completing her 5 year inspection. Trillium is believed to be the only working steam-powered paddle wheeler in North America. And 96-years old to boot meaning she'll be in her 2nd century before she needs to have another inspection. They only replaced one plate in her hull. Trillium is used for excursions in Toronto harbour.

 Trillium in drydock with all work completed.

One of two identical pilothouses on the double ender.

Looking north along the boat deck.

View from her bow. Notice the drydock gate which must be removed so she can leave.
