Bonnington 1911-1931 (sold 1942 and later broken up). (202.5 x 39.6 x 7.5) The first of three beautiful four-deck sternwheelers built by the B.C. Lake & River Service before the First World War. Her sisterships were the Nasookin and the Sicamous (which is preserved at Penticton). The Bonnington was intended for the summer service between Arrowhead and Robson to connect the main line with the routes through southern British Columbia and the Crowsnest Route. The Bonnington was taken out of service during the Depression and was broken up in the late 1940s.
