This is an impressive load of scrap, pushed along on a barge CMT Y Not 2, which I’ve usually associated with piles of sand.

Given the height of the pile relative the wheelhouse,

a watchstander is positioned to maintain a clear view of the waterway.

Pushing this load is Mackenzie Rose,

 

Surprisingly, this load was headed for the Delaware River.

A decade ago, Mackenzie Rose was green and called Vernon C.

Back in June, I saw a similar load but on CMT Y Not 1 and towed by Daisy Mae.

All photos, WVD.

The first post by this title was here, and when I spotted them headed out of town the other day, I knew they were headed on the same run as I’d done a story about a few months back.

You can’t see it, but inside CMT Y Not 2 there’s a front end loader to assist with offloading.

You also can’t see it, but Daisy Mae is a triple screw tugboat.

They headed over to Stapleton to reconfigure the tow and put the big barge on the wire for the day and a half or so trip down to Salem NJ.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, whose previous Daisy Mae photos can be found here.
