Frantz will load wheat for Buffalo

The Joseph H. Frantz will be here today loading wheat for flour mills in Buffalo. It replaces the Kinsman Independent which worked the same route for many years before it was recently decommissioned. The Frantz has a self unloader on its deck (above) that greatly increases its efficiency as opposed to the strait decked Kinsman Independent. Photo taken May 20, 2003.
