From an interview with Mr. Edgar Mudge:

"We've got a Northern Ranger now but this is the second time around--this would have been the old one--the old steam ship that went around the island. It was propelled by steam engines rather than diesels and it always came in lop-sided. My first teaching assignment, when I lived home, I went by way of one of these old CN coastal boats. I got on board in the morning and about twenty-four hours later we arrived at my destination which was probably about 120 miles up on the Northern Peninsula further where there were no roads. It's a beautiful drive up that coast. You're driving along by the ocean and there are the Long Range Mountains and the coastal plains and the mountains in the background."
