Canadian Transport arrives in snow for coal

Saturday afternoon, the Canadian Transport came into port to load coal (above). After waiting a couple hours for the Mesabi Miner to finish loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources, it moved in to replace the Miner at the coal dock. For the Miner, this was its 50th trip to the Twin Ports this season; it is only the 18th for the Transport. The Miner, a thousand footer, loaded 58,000 tons of coal for Presque Isle, on the south shore of Lake Superior. The Transport, at 730 feet, loaded 30,000 tons of coal for Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke. Photo taken on December 20, 2008
