Over the weekend the Lake Superior Railroad Museum celebrated Train Day by welcoming the Milwaukee Road Steam Engine No. 261 back to Duluth.

Many train enthusiasts gathered and followed the historic steam engine on the 5+ hour journey to Duluth. Nick Cooper and I were two of gawkers caught up in the excitement and craziness of tracking down and following the train as it neared the Twin Ports.

I brought my small GoPro video camera just incase I could get a good shot of the train chugging by, I decided to put the camera on a log just feet from the tracks, somewhere I would not want to stand myself after watching the video I got.
