The ARIZONA entered service for the Guion Line in July 1879. 5150 GRT, 450 feet long x 45 wide. 16 knots. Only 4 months later, in November 1879 she hit an iceberg head-on off Newfoundland's Grand Banks, but her collision bulkhead held fast and she made it to port to undergo repairs. Amazingly, no one was killed or even injured!
