Tanker Gemini being led through the draw of the Michigan St. Bridge on the Buffalo River from the summer of 1998 - Brian Wroblewski
Gemini-BW.jpg (142545 bytes)
This photo was taken from the riverfront stairway of the DL&W Train Terminal in downtown Buffalo. Mobil Oil got back into waterborne cargoes for time in the late 1990's after a drought that been in effect since the Buffalo refinery closed back in the 1980's. Tanker traffic out of Nanticoke, Ontario only lasted a few more years, but dried up again, with all incoming product coming by pipeline now that Buckeye Partners owns the Elk St. Product Terminal.
