There are two main attractions at the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad: the rolling stock collection and the train excursion. The Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad has the following rolling stock collection:
· Locomotive 46 was built in 1946 and is an electric center cab. Locomotive 46 was used as a switch engine until August 1984. One year after the locomotive retired, it was donated to the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad by one of its owners, the Flambeau Paper Co.
· Safari Car was built in 1928 with the Northern Pacific Railway in mind. The Hallett Dock Co. donated the Safari Car to the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad. The Railroad renovated and adjusted the Safari Car so it would be accessible to passengers.
· Coach 85 was built with the Missabe and Northern Railway in mind. In 1912, the American Car and Foundry created Coach 85. Later in its lifetime, Coach 85 was used as a car for crew bunks. Currently, Coach 85 has 1950s fitted coach seats for its passengers.
· Coach 29 was also built by the American Car and Foundry the same year Coach 85 was built. This specific model has been remodeled since 1939, but many original designs are preserved.
The second attraction at the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad is the train excursion. The train excursion happens Saturdays and Sundays for approximately two hours. For more information about the train excursions, check out the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad’s website.
