American Valor here with limestone, then to Silver Bay for iron ore pellets

The American Valor came into port on Friday evening around 6:00 (above). It brought limestone loaded at Calcite, Michigan into port. When the boat is discharged sometime this morning, it will go up to Silver Bay to load iron ore pellets for Ashtabula. The Valor is the former Armco, a boat that was here many times over the years. Now owned by American Steamship in Buffalo, it has been painted in American Steamship white and black and no longer shows the Oglebay Norton red/orange colors.
