  • Fire up the #332 Steam Locomotive

    Choose your donation level if you wish to donate:

    During this year's operating season, the DM&IR #332 could be steamed up and pulling excursions on the North Shore Scenic Railroad. But we need your help to finish the job.

    It’s full steam ahead for DM&IR #332 this year with plans to train the crew, certify the engine and run excursions to Two Harbors and back on the North Shore Scenic Railroad. The Steam Team is going to be meet in spring/summer work on the engine and start a training program for engineers and firemen.

    Last fall the engine passed its Federal Railroad Administration hydro test. All that remains for certification this year is to fire up the engine for FRA approval. That will probably happen before Memorial Day. Then there will be several training runs and a schedule of excursion in late summer and fall announced after that.

    You can support the locomotive's designated fund here.
