CSL Niagara leaves downtown behind

With downtown Duluth behind it, the CSL Niagara came into port on Wednesday morning (above) to load taconite. The Canadian flagged vessel departed early Wednesday evening with Christmas lights still on. Five boats are expected in port today to load coal. They won’t all get to the dock today so some of them will have to enjoy a two day visit to Duluth Superior in early January. There will be no new arrivals for coal on Friday but 4 vessels will be here to load taconite at the CN dock in West Duluth. Photo taken on January 02,2008
