Duluth Day Trip

Trains

Yesterday we took a little family day trip up to Duluth, my dear wife was hoping to find some color changing leaves to photograph and it was a nice break from all the pre-baby projects we’ve been working on.

We started out our trip with a stop to Jay Cooke State Park and took a stroll through the woods

The next stop was the Lake Superior Railroad Museum but due to detours and poor directions we ended up at the lift bridge and the marine museum.. then we attempted to find it again and finally found it.

After we were done at the museum we made a trip to Proctor to see if we could see some ore trains. We first caught a limestone train heading out of Proctor and we found a little pull out to stop and take a picture. I suspect the crew was rail-fan friendly because we heard the train notch down while my wife was taking pictures. All pictures in this post marked with a specific copyright are my wife with her DSLR (which is why they are better), the rest are just camera phone pictures taken by me.
