John J. Boland self-unloader

The John J. Boland will load taconite after discharging limestone. The self unloader on her deck (above) was used to discharge the limestone and will be used to discharge the taconite in Lorain, Ohio. When loading cargo, the boom is moved to the side so it will be out of the way. Photo taken March 25, 2005.
