The route of the North Shore Scenic Railroad between Duluth and Two Harbors

The North Shore Scenic Railroad (reporting mark NSSR) is a heritage railroad that operates between Duluth, Minnesota and Two Harbors, Minnesota, United States.

The railroad is owned by the Lake Superior Railroad Museum (LSRM) and offers several types of passenger excursion trains between May and December each year. The railroad started up in 1990, using the Lakefront Line once owned by the Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railway. DM&IR's successor, Canadian National, still has trackage rights over the line, but rarely uses them. The railroad operates several locomotives, notably Great Northern Railway EMD NW5 192, DM&IR EMD SD18 193, Budd Rail Diesel Car 9169, Soo Line EMD GP30 700, and Soo Line FP7 2500. Many steam locomotives have seen excursion service in one form or another. The first to operate was Duluth & Northern Minnesota 14, followed by Soo Line 1003 and Milwaukee Road 261, and (most recently) Soo Line 2719. The Duluth & Northeastern 28, a newly restored 2-8-0 Consolidation built in 1906 is now being used by the NSSR
