John D. Leitch approaching Twin Ports

Four boats will be coming into port to load coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior. The first two, the St. Clair and the John D. Leitch, should be here in the early morning. The St. Clair may depart mid morning and the Leitch mid afternoon. While they were loading coal, we expect the James R. Barker will arrive and be a waiting line of one. The American Mariner will then add itself to the line. The Hong Kong flagged Gadwall arrived off the Duluth piers last night and dropped anchor, waiting for the Adam E. Cornelius to complete loading grain at CHS 1 in Superior. Above, the Canadian flagged John D. Leitch comes into port in May of last year.
