Authentic, gorgeous riverboat models from Model Ship Master

By: Model Ship Master  09-12-2011

The last ferries, the Dutchess, the Orange, and the Beacon provided ferry service until Sunday, November 3, 1963, one day after the opening of the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge.  Shortly after 5 P.M. that day, the Dutchess and the Orange met at mid-river, signaled a final salute and formally retired the Newburgh-Beacon ferry into history after 220 years.  For $2 drivers crossed the Hudson on the ferry for the last time and returned via the new bridge.  Commissioned model.  Not for sale.
