From mid-September to mid-October, the North Shore Scenic Railway and the Lake Superior Railroad Museum sponsor a series of special Fall Color rides between Duluth and Two Harbors.
History and the beauty of the autumn season come alive as a diesel-powered locomotive pulls you through the deep colors of the autumn leaves. The train departs from the Historic Union Depot, just a short drive from the Inn on Lake Superior.
The North Shore Scenic Railroad operates excursions along the historic Lakefront Line, a 26-mile section of rail between Duluth and Two Harbors, Minnesota. In the past, this corridor served as a vital supply and transportation system that connected the isolated town of Duluth with America’s expanding railway network, proving access and supplies into and out of Duluth. Over the years, this corridor became known as the Lakefront Line.
In addition, you can make a full day of exploration by visiting the Lake Superior Railroad Museum, which offers a unique look at the local history of rail travel. Admission is reduced with your Fall Color Tour tickets.
