Twin Ports Railfan and Railroading Page
Updated on April 29th 2005.
Want to learn more about railfanning the Twin Ports and how to get to your favorite railfan spot? Check out the locally produced and UPDATED,
Twin Ports Railfan Guide
A very useful tool to have and it is produced by local railfans who know the area!
New to the guide is a link to the most recent updates of our ever changing railroad scene in the Twin Ports.
Visit it at www.lsrm.org
TPR&RP shows you the views of the different railroads around Duluth, MN. and Superior, WI and selected sites from around the region from the 1980's until the present.
This site has no affiliation and is not sponsored in any way by the major railroads in the region. It is done solely to showcase railroading at its most interesting aspects.
Time is something we all wish we had more of, I know I do. I have not stopped taking photos and you can go to the following link and see.
To allow for faster download time, the photos on most of the pages are thumb nailed (reduced), click on the photo you wish to view enlarged. All photos are taken by me, Kent Rengo unless other wise noted.
My thanks go out to Scott Carney, Bob Gile, Dennis Holmes, Dan Mackey, Gordon Mott, Tim Schandel, Dave Schauer and Mike Schmidt (Basgen Photos) for the information they supplied to me.
