It was reported earlier they were having 'tunnel problems'. Anyone know what they were and if they've been resolved ? I've noticed their unloading times have been quite long. TIA

The Algoma Niagara arrived early Wednesday morning at the CSX Coal Docks at Toledo, Ohio to load coal. This is her second trip to Toledo since she started sailing on the Great Lakes.

Do they still load coal in Conneaut ?


Haven't noticed this yr. if they are loading coal anymore in Conneaut, but it's possible they could be loading pellets at the ore dock. I know a lot of ore was shipped out of Conneaut last year.

Thanks guys as I appreciate all of the information along with the updates and reports. Bummer as that sort of shoots down the idea now of me seeing her in 2017 as I had high hopes of seeing her but now I guess apparently those hopes will have to wait until next year in 2018. As I mentioned before in my earlier post that this can be a good thing for me to with her sistership the Algoma Sault due in here by next Spring. At some point next season we should also see and have the Algoma Innovator I would think as well to look out for as well. At least I will have plenty of new Algoma vessels to be on the look out for in 2018! Thanks again for the updates here.

The Algoma Niagara is making a return visit to Toledo to load coal. She is on the CSX Dock tape and her arrival is scheduled for Tuesday morning 28 November 17. Most likely her arrival time will change once she gets in the Welland Canal.

I was just down at pier 11. The boom is still raised up to the storage building and they're riding quite high.

They're still at pier 11W more than a day after arriving and their next port is still listed as unknown. I wonder if those rumoured 'tunnel' problems in TB were true.

From the Marine Traffic website, they arrived on November 25th at 8:25 a.m. and they had an ETA at 9:00 A.M. on November 25th for the Port of Hamilton's website so it appears from all of that then that they are close to being on time for their arrivals. Anyone have any ideas or guess as to how long it would take for them to unload that grain cargo and where they're headed next? Would very much appreciate any information and to add to it, any ETAs or times are also very much appreciated. This may be my last and final week for 2017 of shipwatching on the St. Clair River and would like to see her up on the river somehow and someway if I can though and any help and information is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
