Early in 1987 Nipigon Transports ceased vessel ownership and sold Lake Nipigon to Algoma Central Marine, Canada. They applied the name Algonorth. She is restricted to service on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River and carries iron ore pellets from the mines in eastern Quebec and Labrador, Canada to Hamilton on Lake Ontario then she returns eastbound with North American grain from Thunder Bay or Duluth on LAke Superior. Those cargoes are off loaded in elevators in Quebec for trans-shipment to ocean ships which take the grain around the world. When this picture was added to the archives in 1/2003 Algonorth was still an active member of the Algoma Central Marine fleet.
