The Algorail is owned and operated by Algoma Central in St. Catherines, Ontario. Other than her 7 trips in 2008, she does not get here very often, only 24 times since 1996. On those trips, she loaded either iron ore pellets or coal. She name comes from her current owners name and from Algoma Central Railroad, a company that used to be part of Algoma Central. The Algorail has a self-unloader on her deck and is outfitted with both bow and stern thrusters. She has 17 hatches that open into 4 cargo holds. She carries a wide variety of cargos since her smaller size enables her to visit many smaller ports around the Great Lakes.
