“Train No Show & No Information”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I waited for the train but it didn't appear. I found out, by chance, that the railway was suspended due to flood problems. I accept that this can happen, but a sign on the ticket office should have been displayed to this effect. Very disappointed

“Fun for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

The trains are reasonably priced and comfortable. A 90 minute trip was just right - fun to see and learn more about the city. Kids will adore taking a "real" train ride!

“Best train ride in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

The scenery is awesome! River views are incredible, lots of wildlife, they tell the history of the riverfront. I recommend this to all people coming to Duluth - locals too!

“A very enjoyable train ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

It's definatly not high speed rail, but the leisure pace and the river Scenery made for a relaxing ride.

“Pleasant ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

We rode in an open car on a beautiful sunny day. The train runs only on Sat and Sun mid June thru Mid October so times to ride are limited. Train departs at 10:30 and 1:30. It is a great ride however. The whole operation is run by volunteers. One of the guys took the young kids into the locomotive before the ride to see the engine and look out the window and to provide a picture opportunity for the parents. Since there is road construction in Duluth this year, there were detailed directions to the train. However, we missed our turn and went back to it. It is not well marked. There is just a small building where you buy the tickets. They are hoping to raise money to build a larger building. No restrooms there before you board but there are two restrooms on board.
Great ride--very scenic and it was a narrated ride. Just water available for purchase.
They did sell a couple items on board the ride.
