Hi,

I've been to Duluth a couple of times and have visited the Depot.  Love to know about everyone's visit there.

Well I'm a member, although at best I get there once a year. It's a great place and getting better, I'd like to try to simulator sometime.

It is worth the trip especialliy since the railfanning around the Twin Ports is so good.  If you get to the Superior WI side, go to the Anchor for an Anchor Burger.  Huge and tasty (great fries) and the pub has lots of maritime stuff on the walls. 

As with most RR museums I always wish the stuff outside was better protected from the elements but this museum has lots of interesting stuff.

How much longer is the Milwaukee Road Boxcab going to be there ?

Is it still heading to Montana ?

Most of it is hush hush as of now, but even if we found/wanted to find a buyer, there is the matter of a large crane and overhead parking lot in the way...not to mention just getting the #10200 ready for transport.
