John D. Leitch approaching Duluth

The John D. Leitch will be here today to load coal. It has only been here 15 times since 1996, continuing a steady stream of seldom seen boats coming here at the end of the season. It often brings salt in but we have not had a very bad winter and thus don’t have quite the need for salt that we usually do. This is the second visit here this year for the Leitch; it was here in May as well (above). In 2001, when the Leitch was known as the Canadian Century, it received a new midsection, giving it a larger cargo hold and soon thereafter a new name.
