American Spirit here for fuel first

The American Spirit came in last night to load iron ore pellets at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) terminal in Superior, but arrived by way of the Duluth entry (above) to take on fuel at Murphy Oil first. This is the 6th visit to the Twin Ports for the 1,004-foot boat this season. It came here many times as the George A. Stinson, although almost always coming in the Superior entry to load at the BN. It was built in 1978.
