Algosteel arriving Duluth ship canal

The Algosteel is expected today for the 4th visit the boat has made to the Twin Ports this season, more than it has made at least since 1996. Above, it is arriving in Duluth in March, 2006, the only trip it made to the Twin Ports last season. It usually loads coal when it is up here, as it is today. On one of the trips this year, however, it brought in a cargo of salt and then left with taconite. Other boats are here today for both taconite and coal, but Two Harbors is the place to see boat traffic. They are expecting to load 4 boats with taconite today, although that should roll over into Saturday.
