  Photo In the left of this photo is the blender for Pier 6 which will mix the coal coming from the two dumpers into a computer controlled mix. Then the coal is moved by conveyor to the actual loader which is mobile, so that the ship does not have to be continually respotted. October 1981. (Jim Gillum photo)
