So does the roller on the back of mark twain actually push this down the water? While it was docked, it was still rolling. I know its on a track, but what moves it?

Mark Twain riverboat burns diesel fuel to heat its boiler, continuously heating water into steam, which is then routed to two pistons that turn the paddlewheel. Spent exhaust is then routed back to the boiler. The riverboat is guided through the Rivers of America via an I-beam track, which is hidden under the green and brown dyed river water. The boat draws only 18 inches (460┬ámm) of water, for the river is relatively shallow. At its deepest point it is no more than 8 feet near the switch at Fowler's Harbor, where it resides when not in operation. The boat uses clean, fresh water from a tank on board to prevent contaminants from the water in the Rivers of America from fouling the boiler. - UmFromUmbridge  258.4 #1110 8-31-12 10:44AM Like  Reply
