  • Restoring MNS #11

    Choose your donation level if you wish to donate:

    Locomotive MNS #11 has been slated for cosmetic restoration to restore it to its original Minnesota, Northfield, & Southern (MNS) livery in the coming year.

    Retired as Hallett Dock #11, it was donated to the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in 2005. It is one of only three remaining intact models of this locomotive type in existence and served its entire operating life in Minnesota.

    Your support will go directly into a fund for the restoration of this special engine to its original look when it entered service in 1946. Contributions to this project go directly to its designated fund, and work is planned over the 2023-2024 winter. At the same time, we will do an inspection to potentially get it operational again. But for now, it is planned a cosmetic restoration for display.
