Middletown will load taconite

The Middletown will be here to load taconite at the DM&IR Dock in West Duluth. It was built in 1942 and saw duty as a tanker in both the Atlantic and the Pacific during World War II. It was hit by a Japanese bomb in 1944. Since then, it has been renamed several times, rebuilt and lengthened.
