American Century in her new black coat

The American Century came into port Friday afternoon to load coal at Midwest Energy. This is only the 2nd visit the Century has made to the Twin Ports this season. Like the first visit, last weekend, it will take the coal to Detroit Edison. Until last week, this boat had an iron ore red color when visiting, but over the winter, it was painted black and white, the colors of the new owner, American Steamship. They purchased the boat from Oglebay Norton in 2006. Photo taken on May 01, 2009
