Montrealais in the Twin Ports

The Montrealais was here three times last year. It is here today for the 6th time this season, loading grain that will most likely be taken to the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. There it will be discharged and loaded onto salt water ships for shipment to Europe or other international destinations. The Montrealais is still powered by the original steam engine installed when it was built in 1962.
