This version of the Oakglen started life as the Federal Danube in 1980. She became the Lake Ontario in 1995 and the Oakglen in 2009. More on the other Oakglen here. She was scrapped in 2003. The Oakglen arrived Duluth on Thursday afternoon to load iron ore pellets at the CN in Duluth after she loaded fuel at Calumet.

The wind died down and local longshoremen at AGP should complete loading the Lake Ontario today. The bright red salt water ship should be departing this afternoon, taking wheat, soy beans and flax seed to Ghent, Belgium. Above, the ship got an escort from local gulls as it entered the Duluth ship canal in October, 2002. The Pochard will be here today to load grain. Other vessels will be loading coal and taconite; still others will be here discharging salt and limestone. Photo taken on October 14, 2002.
