All Aboard the North Shore Scenic Railroad

Duluth’s North Shore Scenic Railroad opens for the 2019 season in April. Several trains depart the historic train depot daily, leaving on a fully narrated tour of downtown Duluth, Canal Park, and Lake Superior, before heading deep into the majestic north woods. You’ll learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Duluth, the harbor, and the railways that build this region. The Duluth Zephyr is the most popular excursion, as it’s slightly shorter, but still hits most of the highlights. This beautiful 75-minute ride explores downtown, the shoreline of Lake Superior, and then travels through the historic Congdon Neighborhood before returning to the depot. There’s also a first class option, which allows you to ride in the upper-level dome car, where you’ll enjoy unhampered views.  If you’re interested in a more extensive trip, take the 6-hour full trip to Two Harbors, which includes a lengthly layover in Two Harbors, adequate for lunch (food not included), touring and shopping. Your entrance ticket to the Lake Superior Railroad Museum is included with your ticket.

The North Shore Scenic Railroad also hosts a variety of special events throughout the year, including a Mother’s Day Luncheon, a unique way to watch participants of Grandma’s Marathon, a Father’s Day BBQ Lunch, an elegant dinner train, murder mysteries, a beer tasting train, and Fall Colors Tours, starting in September.  Tickets for all of these great excursions are already on sale, so plan well in advance to get these coveted tickets, then making your lodging arrangements at the A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast.
