Overview of the large coal and iron ore transshipment harbor and facility at Ashtabula, Ohio on the south shore of Lake Erie. The breakwater can be seen in the distance with the old lighthouse on the west end and its replacement on the east breakwater. A large conveyor system is relatively new to move coal from the railroad trains to a large storage area where it will be loaded onto ships. In the distance are piles of taconite, processed low grade iron ore, which have been transported by ship from northern Minnesota. The large white building in the lower right is the former U.S. Coast Guard station now used by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

A hundred years ago this view would have been much different with a huge complex of loading and unloading docks and a steel mill or two mixed in.

Thanks for your comment. Interesting place. Great place to take photos of the railroad yard,etc as there is an overlook but hard to get good close shots of the lakers that come in to unload ore or load coal. Interesting for recreational vessels - there are hundreds of those. Plus a semi-revitalized "old town" right by the river and a few bascule bridges.

Ashtabula was an amazing place in the old days with lots of the old unloaders, etc, steel mills, railroads, even a Pennsylvania RR car ferry which went from Ashtabula to someplace across Lake Erie.

Thanks for your comment.
