New for the 2018 season, this ride is similar in offerings to the above listed Duluth Zephyr, but is only 1-hour from departure to return. The narrated tour is meant as a quick morning train ride, leaving plenty of time to tour the museum after, or enjoy other attractions in Duluth. This excursion also accepts any vouchers or promotions as the Duluth Zephyr does, such as the Must-See-Duluth pass.

The ride travels from the Duluth Depot, through downtown Duluth, along the shoreline of Lake Superior, until it reaches a siding where we stop briefly to turn around and return to the Depot.  

Both Coach Seats and First Class seats are available!
Coach Seats: Ride in one of several historic coaches. Some have open windows, some have air conditioning/heat, its up to you! A concession car is also available to explore.
