North Shore Scenic Railroad: Anniversary Milestone Day for Railroading in Duluth

Aug 28, 2020 | locations/events

In Duluth 150 years ago, the Lake Superior & Mississippi Railroad began daily passenger service between the newly minted Zenith City and St. Paul, with LS&M president William Banning hosting dignitaries in a specially outfitted train on the trip from the state capital to the Zenith City. The coming of the Jay Cooke’s railroads, the LS&M and the Northern Pacific, was perhaps the most important element of Duluth’s early success.
