Canadian Transport here to load coal

The newly built Loireborg arrived off the Duluth piers last night and dropped anchor to wait for the berth at General Mills. Just before the Loireborg appeared, the Canadian Transport arrived (above) in port to load coal at Midwest Energy Resources. The American Spirit was due early this morning and will likely become third boat to lay up for winter. The Edward L. Ryerson and the American Victory are already here for layup, both at Fraser Shipyards in Superior. Photo taken on December 10, 2008
