If you haven't lost interest in this subject already, I've got a few images to share.....
Route 7 - 2001
Arriving at Earls Cove.
Looking forward from the starboard bridge wing.
Looking aft from the starboard bridge wing.
In the Wheelhouse.
Engine Room - 2002
Engine Controls. The engines on the "Tsawwassen" aren't controlled from the wheelhouse as on the other ships. Each time a command comes down, it has to be logged in by hand on the pieces of paper beside the brass handles.
Looking towards the massive V-16 starboard engine. One of the steam boilers is visible on the right.
There are three Cat generators in the Engine Room and an emergency generator in front of the funnel. They need two running (one for all the lights and electrical and one for the bow thrustor motor) while underway.
View from above the starboard main engine. If I recall, the pipes in the centre carry steam heat to keep the engines warm during a shut down period.
Route 9 - 2000
The "Tsawwassen" approaching Tsawwassen terminal.
Unloading traffic at berth 2.
The two large exhaust pipes are for each of the main engines, the skinnier ones are for the generators, and the really thin ones are for the steam boilers.
And what would an 'Airchime' photo-essay be without a shot of her dual KM's!
Good photos of the TsawwassenAirchime that was one thing that I was a little bit disappointed about with my last trip in that just staying on board for the whole time on route nine doesn't let you get any pics of her underway away from outside the ship, but your pictures sure fit the bill.

A beautiful and soon to be significant photo right there!
This could very well be her last assignment with BCF before retirement.
