Wow, Burns Harbor visits Duluth

On June 13, 2015, the Burns Harbor made a surprise (at least to me) visit to the Duluth ship canal, coming in around 5:30 in the afternoon. Most of the time, she comes in using the Superior entry since she loads iron ore pellets at the BNSF dock just inside the entry. I think she needed fuel and is at the Calumet fuel dock in Duluth. And the brand new CSL St-Laurent is at the BN dock now (6:00 pm).


  1. It seems to be a season for unusual and interesting things to be happening. The McCarthy one of the 1000 footers is taking a break right in the middle of prime coal and ore hauling season! But I suppose it is to be expected with world ore prices at record lows cheaper than we can produce it and having a higher iron content than our taconite does, it’s no wonder that steel plants all over the world are able to ship steel to us at very low price
