Mustang pellets on the way to Indiana

2017-0602-2495
Above, on Friday evening, June 2, 2017, the Isolda was still loading grain at Riverland Ag, above lower center and the James R. Barker  had arrived, around 4 pm in the afternoon and was getting fuel at Calumet (top, right). When she completed that, she went over to CN Duluth (below) to load the first cargo of Mustang pellets to come down from the iron range on its way to ArcelorMittal’s blast furnace No. 7 in Indiana Harbor. See story below or here. To celebrate the occasion, Interlake hung a banner (below) on the Barker’s self unloader (one on each side) so every one could celebrate the big event as they make the trip from Duluth to Indiana Harbor. In the pictures below, they had not yet started to load the pellets but they soon did and she is expected to leave sometime Saturday afternoon.
