On June 3, 2021, The Lake Superior & Mississippi Railroad held a news conference at our garage to announce that our 2021 season is being postponed until 2022 due to the US Steel Superfund project that is currently underway. Our tracks pass through 1.5 miles of the work site where bridges and track will be replaced to help with the environmental improvements to the area.
This season’s downtime offers us a unique opportunity for maintenance and renovations.
Enbridge Energy has provided a generous grant to renovate the outdoor Safari Car.
Enbridge has also provided employees to begin work on
this project. To date, The Safari Car has been “stripped to the frame”, the first step in the
rebuild process. Further updates will be posted as the project moves along.
