Good to see a good old friend again. ATLANTIC SUPERIOR was calling Bremen, Germany, quite regular, together with the AMBASSADOR ex CANADIAN AMBASSADOR. Both were supplying the local steel works with iron ore from Rotterdam and Narvik. Their job is now done by the WESER STAHL, custom built for this trade.

Rare situation indeed and a great shot thereof .I've been shipspotting since 2003 regularly and have seen this occur few times only, with an exception of the end of the season, when the traffic is expedited downbound from the Lakes (http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/myalbum/photo.php?lid=36564
). I would like to know why this has occurred?????
Also, Algoma's PETER R. CRESSWELL was transiting downbound Welland Canal on October 28, 2005 and has utilized lock# 6 west to # 4 west respectively to descent down the mountain instead of the locks.First time I’ve seen that.
Great job Matt

|i think that might have been part of the reason. If i remember correctly atlantic followed CSL through locks 8 and 7 then at 6 i presume since CSL is seaway max and takes longer to lock through that they decided to put atlantic on one side and have csl head through the other and she eventually beat her down|

|Could it be that there was nothing going upbound and more trafic downbound?|

|great shot of both of them, matt. don't know why they did this, usually they do it in winter when shipping season is finishing. :-D|

Impressive and instructive view of the locks.
I like a lot, Matt. Thank you.
