The Thunder Bay is the 3rd of four Trillium class self unloaders to enter Great Lakes service. She left Chengxi Shipyard in Jiangyin, China in May, 2013, arrived in Montreal in July and began her maiden voyage in August.
Above and below, the Thunder Bay arrives Duluth on Saturday, August 30, 2014 to load iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth. This is her 9th trip here this season; she was here 6 times last year.

    Visited Duluth in August. First time to any of the Great Lakes. Duly impressed by the sights and the people here. I felt welcome everywhere I went by very friendly folks. I enjoy watching the shipping on this site. Very different from Texas.
