Locomotive 28 on a roll!



Making it's first trip to Two Harbors today, Steam Locomotive 28 is a good reminder of the importance that railroads played in the region.

Today, I followed the train during it's 20 mile trip and enjoyed the sights and sounds of a bygone era.

Locomotive 28 was restored over the past 6 years with thousands of dollars and countless hours of work from the North Shore Scenic Railroad.

  1. That was neat! I was holding my breath though wondering if you knew how far away to stay. People get killed photoing trains! Casna

  7. how cool!!! Most places that used to have train tracks don't anymore. I live in Holland Mich and the train tracks are used a lot from Amtrak to trains that pull loads of coal.
    Thank you so much for posting that. Also i wanted to say thank you for the cameras that watch the lake freighters I enjoy watching them.

  8. Thanks Dennis: Being a railfan I was quite interested to see the #28 back in service, and just when it would be in June. Now to see it in person, knowing all your locations when I chased #2719 to Two Harbors. Glad to see steam back in DULUTH!!! Jeff H.
