Celebrate National Train Day on Saturday

There is a special celebration happening on Saturday at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum. It’s National Train Day from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The event will celebrate when Leland Stanford drove in the Golden Spike that symbolized the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad 155 years ago.
