Owner description: 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.

“Great for kids and families”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Took the kids and it was the perfect amount of time and interest for a 5 and 2 year old!! Would go again and possibly take a different tour as they get older.

“Steam Engine Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

It was Fantastic to ride a Steam Engine between Duluth & Two Harbors in MN. View along the ride was breath taking. Staff on board were extremely professional and friendly. One member told us many jokes at various points which kept us all laughing. Also rode the Elegant Dinner Train and the food was Excellent!!

“Fun Trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

It was a fun ride! My kids loved it. We were on the outside car which was fun and a bit loud, but neat to hear the train noises. The tracks went right along Lake Superior it had beautiful views of the lake.

“A wonderful ride on the Mystery train”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Recently I had the chance to ride the North Shore Scenic Railroad's Mystery train. The venue was wonderful, the food terrific and the play very funny. I've ridden the Two Harbors and the Pizza train. Both were great fun and wonderful for kids. The Mystery train is great for an adult trip

“Day out with Thomas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Our boys really enjoyed the Day out with Thomas. It was set up well, very organized with several things for the kids to do. The kids were a little disappointed when the train ride was over, they said it was too short! But, in actuality it was a long enough ride for most of the kids who were becoming fidgety! The old trains were fun to see as well. We would definitely come up and go for another train excursion.
