Ben Cullen Reference Valid?[edit]

I was checking references in the "Further Reading" section (looking for some books to read about a Panama Canal cruise coming up), and I tried looking up "Cullen, Ben. (2010). The Panama Canal and Me: A Panamax Special. ISBN 978-0-8212-7754-6". There's no hits on Google, and the ISBN number is invalid. Is this a real book? Can somebody verify this, or confirm that somebody stuck in a fake reference for some reason? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.210.14.1 (talk) 22:30, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Culebra Cut not Gaillard Cut[edit]

This article heavily uses Gaillard Cut whereas the Culebra Cut article makes clear the name was reverted to the latter after the canal handover to Panama in 2000. – Conrad T. Pino (talk) 16:10, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Rolling Road[edit]

Perhaps a rolling road concept with the ship supported at it's support locations,

like it would be in drydock

is preferable

NASA's Space Shuttles are moved over a large distance to the launch site

I think this is a fair comparision — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.120.65.78 (talk) 17:43, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

How much area of Panama was north and south of the Canal Zone?[edit]

I see the size of the Canal Zone, but what was the area north of the zone and south of the zone? --137.254.4.5 (talk) 15:00, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
