Review of Steam Railroading in the North Country DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
Pay a visit to northern Minnesota and enjoy some steam freight and passenger trains on the North Shore Scenic Railroad between Duluth and Two Harbors. This area has a rich railroad history, and our special trains help relive it. We see Duluth and Northeastern 2-8-0 steam locomotive #28, which is also relettered in her former livery as DM&IR 332. You'll step back in the old times seeing the steam locomotive in action, pulling freight and passenger cars from the Lake Superior Railroad Museum collection.

See Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range #332 pull a string of DM&IR ore cars, a sight not seen since the 1950's.
