The 1974-built, 3,709-dwt, 3,838-grt passenger, train and vehicle ferry Incan Superior is seen in this photograph while she was transiting downbound in the Welland Canal during the late morning hours of a day in December of 1993. She was enroute from Thunder Bay, Ontario to Canada's West Coast to begin operation for her new owners, CP Rail.

She was built in British Columbia, Canada at the Burrard Dockyard as Incan Superior for Incan Ships Ltd., of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She operated primarily on Lake Superior until her sale to CP Rail in 1993 when she was taken to the Pacific for new duties. She was subsequently renamed Princess Superior and her bow was cut down to facilitate front loading and discharge of rail cars and road vehicles. Late in 1994 Princess Pacific was transferred to CP Ships Inc. and her operation was taken over by Coastal Marine Operations, possibly a subsidiary of CP Ships. When this picture was added to the archives in October of 2002 she was still operational as Princess Pacific for the Seaspan Coastal Intermodal Company.
