Historic 1946 GE Engine to Receive Major Upgrade
The Lake Superior & Mississippi Railroad had to suspend operations for 3 years (2020-2022) because of the Covid-19 pandemic and then for the Spirit Lake/US Steel clean-up project along the St Louis River Train excursion route. Our all-volunteer railroad stayed active repairing track, and rehabbing locomotive 46, the safari car, and coaches.
After nearly 70 years of service, this venerable locomotive is in need of care to insure it’s operability for the LS&M RR.
