Tuscarora will load wheat for Morocco

The Tuscarora arrived Duluth on Saturday afternoon (above), getting a welcome from an unexpectedly large crowd. It was switching places with the just departed BBC Atlantic. The Tuscarora will be loading wheat for Morocco. The American Century, formerly the Columbia Star, will depart Duluth around noon with a load of coal for Silver Bay. The short trip will allow it to return tomorrow to load coal, this time for Consumers Energy’s Cobb power plant at Muskegon, Michigan. The Algosoo should be arriving here early in the afternoon to load coal and also departing later in the day. That coal will go to Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke.
