Quebecois brings cement

The steam powered Quebecois will be here today for the 2nd time this season. It was also here on April 1st, at the beginning of the season (above). It was here 6 times last year. On all trips last year and this, it brought cement to discharge at the St. Lawrence Cement plant in Duluth. Built in 1966 in Montreal, it has two sister ships working the Great Lakes, the Montrealais and the Canadian Miner. The Miner is diesel powered, the other two steam. Beyond that, they are almost identical ships. Photo taken on April 01, 2007.
