The James R. Barker arrived under the Lift Bridge on Monday evening (pictured) to load coal to take to Taconite Harbor. It left with 58,000 tons of coal late Tuesday morning and arrived in Taconite Harbor late Tuesday afternoon. It will return here early Thursday to load another 58,000 tons of coal, this time taking it to Marquette. Then on Sunday, it will be back after servicing the needs of two Lake Superior ports to load coal for Detroit Edison power plants in St. Clair, Michigan. Photo taken on July 13, 2009
