Adam E. Cornelius to take wheat to Buffalo

The Adam E. Cornelius departed its winter layup berth in Toledo on April 15th and loaded a cargo of limestone for the Twin Ports, coming under the Lift Bridge on Sunday afternoon (above). When it completes discharging that cargo, it will load wheat to take to Buffalo. This is the first trip here this season for the Cornelius. It made 16 trips last season and 21 the year before. On some of the trips last season, it arrived here in ballast (empty), other times, it brought limestone. The Cornelius loaded wheat for Buffalo on most trips last season. Several times, it loaded iron ore pellets while here.
