The Baie Comeau is the 4th Trillium class boat built in China for Canada Steamship. Built in 2013, she made 7 trips here that year, loading both coal and iron ore pellets. The coal was taken to the mouth of the St. Lawrence River where it was offloaded to larger ocean going ships going to Europe. To mid July, she made 6 trips to the Twin Ports in 2014.

    Great photo Ken of the Baie Comeau unloading in Duluth. She loaded that cargo in Sarnia, Ontario at the Cargill Grain Elevator and I happen to see and photograph her loading that cargo in September at the time. I am still waiting to see this fine looking vessel on the St. Clair River either upbound or downbound. The only photos that I have is of her loading in Sarnia from the stern end as that is all I could get then.
