Lake Superior & Mississppi Railroad Mission Statement
The Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad Company (LS&M) is incorporated as a
nonprofit 501 (c)(3) Company. We are an all volunteer passenger railroad dedicated to the
preservation of railroad history and restoration of railroad artifacts.
The original LS&M built the first railroad into Duluth in the 1870's. The current LS&M
reserves 5.2 miles of the this original railroad right-of-way into Duluth. The LS&M operates
vintage railroad equipment to let the passenger experience rail transportation as it was in the
early to middle 19th century. The LS&M is committed to providing the public with a
historical and educational railroad experience.
All revenues generated from passenger fares and donations are used for restoration,
maintenance and operation.
