Topic review - KCBX North - last vessel
Author Message
  Post subject:  Re: KCBX North - last vessel  Reply with quote
I enjoyed watching the docks because there were a wide variety of boats that loaded there incuding barges that came up from the Mississippi.
In the years I was by there the W W Holloway was running out of there almost every other day it seemed.
It was always a challenge passing there because sometimes a boat hung out farther in the river than we could clear and they had to hurry up and wich out of the way, or they had their self unloader boom swung out.

Thanks so much. Its strange to drive by and see the dock always empty and no coal on the ground.

I noticed your question on Boatnerd and I contacted two local photographers here in Chicago who were here during that time period, Lou Gerard & Mike Garza. (so they should be credited for this information) The last vessel to load at the KCBX North Dock is believed to be Algoma's Algowood and the date the vessel departed the dock is 5 June 2015.

Jon Paul's photo passing this site, which was once called Rail to Water, reminded me to bump this message. Does anyone know the last vessel to load there and the date? Likely sometime in early 2015.
