We took the the hour and a half ride yesterday through Duluth. A nice ride & interesting narrative our 3 year old also enjoyed it. We will be back again for the Two Harbors trip next year!

I enjoyed the ride on the train yesterday. It was well done, nice equipment, interesting commentary, nice views, very historic. I would recommend that they allow boarding much earlier rather then everyone standing in a long line for no apparent reason.

What a nice ride on this historic train. The volunteers were wonderful and the narrative was very interesting. This was well worth the fee and a wonderful part of the day. A big thankyou to the volunteers that devote their time!

We went on the 90 minute ride up the North Shore a ways and back. It was fun to see what it was like to ride on a train. We were able to see some of the city that we would have not seen otherwise.

Fun informative trip. Train and track very old. The conductor gives a good oral history lesson, not much to see but the scenery is beautiful.

There are 2 train rides in Duluth. The other heading North is great but this is even better especially if you want to see wildlife and follow right along the St Louis River! It departs right across the street from the Lake Superior Zoo so...More

Went on the train on July 26th. What a great trip. All volunteers operate this train. About one hour and 40 minutes. A great way to learn some history of the Duluth area.

We went to 6930 Fremont St. where it starts and parked. It is open Saturdays and Sundays through Mid-October.
Do the tours run in December?
