CSL Niagara departs Duluth as season-end nears

By the end of the day, the last Canadian flagged vessel of the year, the Michipicoten, is expected to depart the port. That of course does not count the Frontenac. It is spending the winter at Fraser Shipyards in Superior. The Canadian flagged CSL Niagara departed the port with taconite on Saturday morning (above). The Roger Blough and the Lee A. Tregurtha were expected to arrive last night, both for winter lay up. The American Mariner should be arriving today for lay up. Photo taken on January 12, 2008
