History comes alive on the Lakefront line of the North Shore Scenic Railroad! During our summer season several trains a day depart the historic Duluth Union Depot for a trip through downtown Duluth, Canal Park, along the shore of Lake Superior and deep into the majestic north woods. Fully narrated tours tell the history of Duluth, the harbor, and the stories of the railroads that built northern Minnesota and Wisconsin.

schedules

Trains depart daily from the Historic Union Depot in Downtown Duluth from Mid-April until Late October. The tracks extend all the way to Two Harbors, about 30 miles away, but most excursions run a shorter distance. A few options of regular excursions are listed below, many more special excursions run throughout the year. shim
