Burns Harbor loads taconite

Two 1,000-footers (the Walter J. McCarthy Jr. and the Indiana Harbor)  will be here today loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources while one (the Burns Harbor) loads taconite at Burlington Northern, and another (American Spirit) loads taconite at Two Harbors. The 730 foot Canadian Progress will also load coal, while the 770 foot St. Clair loads taconite in Superior. The 858 foot Roger Blough visits Two Harbors on Christmas Eve for taconite. Above, the Burns Harbor loading taconite at Burlington Northern in September, 2004.
