First Saltie of the season due this evening

FYI,  The Federal Weser will be arriving Duluth at about 21:30 this evening to be the first Saltie of the season. The Federal Weser will be loading grain at CHS.

Here is a recording of it back in 2015.


  1. This means the ship travels the oceans?

    1. Yes, it is the first ocean going ship of the season. It will arrive from overseas.

  2. The Pier B view was almost as good as the local fotogs last night. Put a gold filter on it.
    I think the old B cam was perched higher so it shot above the bridge.
    But it's still nice to see a ship on B cam as opposed to a grain of sand on the canal cam.
    And it's interesting that the money shot that the locals chose was the Pier B angle.
