Working on the Railroad

Ride the open road with a Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific/Canadian National freight train, transfer tons of taconite with the Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range Railway from Minnesota’s Iron Range to ore docks in Two Harbors and Duluth, and switch cars in Canadian Pacific’s rail yard on Rice’s Point. We’ll follow a coal shipment on the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe, ride along on a run to Hayward aboard the Wisconsin Central, and cross the St. Louis Bay on the Grassy Point Drawbridge with the Union Pacific.
