Gully to Duluth

Between 1909 and 1910, the Minneapolis, Saint Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad, the "Soo Line", built a mainline between Plummer and Duluth, in Minnesota. The portion of the line between Gully and Moose Lake, where it connects to The Duluth Branch, lies abandoned today.

Towns along the line are:

  • Gully
  • Gonvick
  • Clearbrook
  • Leonard
  • Pinewood
  • Bemidji
  • Cass Lake
  • Federal Dam
  • Boy River
  • Remer
  • Shovel Lake
  • Swatara
  • Palisade
  • McGregor
  • Lawler Junction

Thanks to Adam Jelinski for contributing information about this route.

I have always been fascinated with RR. I spent my summers on my uncle's farm in Clearbrook, MN. I have seen a couple of pictures of the RR going thru Clearbrook in the past years. In 2015 I walked by the grain elevator on the RR grade and wondered about all the steam engines that had taken that path. I understand my dad took the train that eventually took him to Fort Snelling durning WWII
