20110902_5081She was built as the Canadian Progress. The two top pictures were taken on Friday, September 2, 2011 when she was departing Duluth with her new name on the hull.  She was part of the Algoma Central purchase from Upper Lakes Group which is why she is now the Algoma Progress.
She had just loaded iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth. algomaprogress20110902_5077

The Canadian Progress is a regular visitor to the Twin Ports, usually loading coal for Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke. She was built in 1968 at Port Weller Dry Docks in St. Catharines, Ontario and is 730 feet in length, 75 feet wide with 22 hatches on her deck that open into one cargo hold below deck. A 250-foot self-unloading boom was added to her deck in 1968. She is owned and operated by U.L.S. Corporation of Toronto. Her name was derived from Canada’s 1967 centennial year’s motto "A Century of Progress".

I heard the Progress will be scrapped at the end of the 2013 season.
