I found missing several important bits of information that I would like to know. The dimensions of the model are given, but not the scale of the model. The size of the riverboat itself are not given, and can't be calculated from the model. The fastest time for the trip from Cincinnati to Pittsburgh is given, but not the typical travel time, with all 24 stops, which the usual traveler would experience. No reason was given for why the boat was decommissioned in 1857 when only the eight year old. Was it worn out, or made obsolete by a railroad?
