The Burns Harbor will be loading taconite at the Burlington Northern Dock today for the 30th time this season. Built in 1980, it was the 10th US flagged thousand foot boat built for Great Lakes service. The Burns Harbor set a port record in 1996 when it loaded 65,466 metric tons of iron ore at Burlington Northern. That cargo went to Burns Harbor, Indiana. Photo taken September 29, 2004.
