Our 2019 Season BEGINS Saturday, July 27th.

The first departure will start on time at 10:30

with the second at 1:30

After a delayed start due to unexpected mechanical issues, we're up and running to provide the most scenic excursion access to the St. Louis River Estuary and the rich history of the area that help build Duluth starting in August of 1870. 

Check out this article on how grand our trip is in the fall:

CALL FOR ACTION

The train and tracks are in jeopardy 

This two part article from the Duluth Reader by John Ramos explains much of what our organization is going through.  We are working hard to preserve the tracks that provides access for those who can not travel by trail to see the estuary and a superfund site (before and after the clean up)

The current City Administrations plan will put the train's operation in jeopardy of serving due to a severely shortened track as well as the destination of the Boy Scout Launch not to mention the most scenic section of the trip.

The City of Duluth's Administration has proposed shortening the most scenic train experience in the region. This has taken us by surprise.  
This will effect our future operations

This plan will also cut us off from our destination of Boy Scout Landing bringing our popular shuttle service for kayakers to an end.  We have partnered with local businesses, Spirit Lake Marina and the Guide services like Day Tripper, for the most unique paddling shuttle service in the region.
