Cason J. Callaway, part of the Great Lakes Fleet, purchased by
Canadian National Railway and now operated by Key Lakes, Inc,
was built in 1952. She has gone through several changes that
have allowed her to continue an active life on the Great Lakes.
First, in 1981, a 262-foot boom was added to her deck, changing
her from a straight deck bulk carrier to a self-unloader. She
had already been lengthened by 120 feet in 1974 to create her
current length of 767 feet. In 2002, she underwent an extensive
rehabilitation at the Fraser Shipyard in Superior. Her steam
engine was upgraded rather than replaced, and automation tools
were added, moving control of the boat up to the pilot house.
This makes her the most advanced steam powered-boat on the Great
Lakes today. She is named for a man who spent most of his life
in Georgia, working in the textile industry. He became a member
of the board of directors of US Steel in 1944 and served until
his death in 1961. He also founded Callaway Gardens in Georgia.
The Callaway made 16 visits to Duluth-Superior during the
2012-13 shipping season.
