Burns Harbor at BN for taconite

Ship traffic for Duluth may be over before lunchtime today. Only four boats are set to come under the Lift Bridge today. Two of them should be gone before sunrise, while the Adam E. Cornelius may come in the Duluth entry about the same time to get fuel before going to Burlington Northern to load taconite. It will likely depart using the Superior entry. Above, the Burns Harbor is loading taconite at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe taconite facility dock. It came in and will leave using the Superior entry, seen at the top left of the photo. The Mesabi Miner may be departing under the Lift Bridge in the late morning. As always, this can easily change; the shipping business does not run on a schedule. Photo taken September 29, 2004.
