Cornelius arrives to Canal Park crowd

The Adam E. Cornelius arrived in town on Monday afternoon (above), welcomed at the ship canal by a lot of people enjoying the ships and the sun together. This is the 4th trip here for the Cornelius this season. On this trip, it brought limestone in and when that is discharged, it will move over to both the General Mills elevator and to CHS to load wheat for Buffalo. On some of the trips last season, it arrived here in ballast (empty), other times as today, it brought limestone. The Cornelius loaded wheat for Buffalo on most trips last season although several times, it loaded iron ore pellets. Photo taken on June 15, 2009
