Lake Superior & Mississippi Railroad

Historic Site

Join the fun traveling the first railroad route into Duluth Minnesota. You will enjoy a six mile historic train journey following the beautiful St. Louis River Corridor in western Duluth. The 1:40 ride is filled with history, wildlife and incredible scenery. Listen to the narration that includes rich Ojibwa history and learn about local land marks such as:

  • Beaver Dan
  • Munger Landing
  • Clough Island (otherwise know as Whiteside Island)
  • Spirit Island
  • Blackmer Curve
  • Skimmer Pond
  • Mud Lake
  • Oliver Bridge
  • Plus More!!!

Check out the two vintage 100 year old passenger coaches and the 1946 switch engine. Step outside to the Safari Car and experience nature at its best and wonder through the cars freely.

This ride is the closest view or the 12,000 acre freshwater estuary you can have without getting wet! See views of Duluth that can only be seen by train with unobstructed views of the lush forest and panoramic views overlooking Wisconsin. The river has some of the best walleye and muskie fishing in the state.

Take an engine tour before the ride, meet the crew and take photos along the way. Enjoy watching the yellow switch engine as it uncouples from the westbound train and circles over to the opposite end to couple back up to head east to the Ticket Office. This ride is a one of a kind, unique railroad experience!

Be sure to join us for the fall color show when the trees in the River Corridor show off, it is spectacular.
