Federal Welland loading grain

The Ziemia Gornoslaska is due here this morning to load grain. This afternoon the Federal Welland arrives to load bentonite. Above, the Federal Welland is seen loading grain on a visit here in September, 2001. It is bright red. Today marks only the 4th visit the Federal Welland has made to the Twin Ports. The Ziemia Gornoslaska has been here 13 times since 1996. The Federal Oshima was expected in last night to load grain. There are only 3 more salt water vessels scheduled for the rest of the season at this time. The last salt water vessel usually leaves the port by December 19th, a week from today.
