Ryerson unusually arriving Duluth

The Edward L. Ryerson will be coming into port by way of the Superior entry to pick up a load of iron ore pellets at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) dock, just inside the entry. This will be the Ryerson’s 16th trip to the Twin Ports this season. Ten times it came in Superior and 5 times, it entered under the Lift Bridge. Above, it is entering the Duluth ship canal in November, 2006. It will come in the Duluth entry either to get fuel at the Murphy Fuel dock or if repairs are needed at Fraser Shipyards. It spent the winter at Fraser. Today, it is just here to pick up cargo, unless they run into a problem requiring work or they decide to get fuel.
