Canadian Transport leaves with coal

The big news today is the rebirth of the Walter J. McCarthy Jr. After almost 4 months of repairs, it will be going out in the lake this morning for sea trials and is expected back early this evening to load coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior. It will follow the Canadian Transport seen above departing Duluth in April, 2004. Both boats will be taking coal to Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke.
