Anderson coming in to Twin Ports

Three thousand footers are due in Duluth before noon today. The Mesabi Miner and the Paul R. Tregurtha will be here to load coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior. The James R. Barker is also expected to go under the Lift Bridge for fuel at the Murphy Fuel Dock at the Port Terminal. It will then go down the Superior channel to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe dock just inside the Superior entry. Both coal boats should also be departing Duluth before the day is out. The not quite so long Arthur M. Anderson is bringing limestone from Cedarville, Michigan to discharge at the CN Dock in West Duluth. Above, it is entering the Duluth ship channel in October, 2002.
