CITY OF KEY WEST
steamer model


In 1898 the Florida East Coast Steam Ship Company bought the City of Richmond steam boat and renamed her City of Key West.  The elegant steamer was put into service between the then southern most extent of Flaglers Railroad at the mouth of the Miami river and the City of Key West, getting through and around the treacherous reefs and shoals that abound in the shallow waters between Key West and Miami. Train passengers and freight could now make connections in Key West with ships going almost anywhere. 
 

 
 
 

 
This 42" long model of the paddle steamship City of Key West was commissioned in April, 2016.  Construction started in May and completed in September.  If you want a paddle steamer model, let us build one for you today by clicking on the "COMMISSIONING" button on the left.
