Two toots from the Block

The Joseph L. Block came into port on Tuesday, October 11, 2011 with a cargo of limestone to discharge; she will then load iron ore pellets at the CN Dock and depart. Listen to her whistle, twice , first to the bridge while in the ship canal and then to the passing Vista Queen after turning into the harbor.


  1. Kenneth Newhams says:

    U r right; the Vista was quiet; and i hoped i could get her whistle, although i sure have heard it enough over the years; i should record it sometime soon though

  2. Paul from St. Paul says:

    Holly, I think that was the lift bridge replying the salute, not the Vista Queen.

  3. Keep the whistles coming. Neat


  4. Jill from Alabama says:

    I actually saw the whole thing happen! Thanks, Ken, for turning on the sound. It was fun!

  5. Thanks Ken! These are so cool to listen too.

  6. that was very cool…i have not heard that before…and the queen replied.
