As an alternative to shipping low-sulfur western coal down the Mississippi for trans-shipment to Europe, the coal was shipped by rail to Superior, Wisconsin and loaded on CSL self unloaders for shipment down the Seaway to Sep-Iles. Coal was unloaded from the J. W. McGiffin directly to the Tadoussac and into a CSL Panamax vessel for delivery to Spain. Original CSL photo taken in Summer, 1993.
