Hercules' Second Career, 1924-1962Between 1924 and 1962, Hercules worked for the Western Pacific Railroad moving railroad cars on barges between Oakland/Alameda and Islais Creek/Fishermam's Wharf. Because these car floats were pushed and pulled from the side, rather than simply towed astern, Hercules' strong steel hull took a lot of bumps. For extra protection, a fender rail was added on her starboard side.
