On the Gunflint Trail?

     If you happen to be on the Gunflint Trail on the 9th of February then you won’t want to miss a presentation by Dave Battistel. He’s the leading expert in all things Port Arthur, Duluth and Western Railway- the old railway located off of the Gunflint Trail.  He loves to explore our area and has so much knowledge to share with everyone about our rich history.  You may remember a blog post I wrote this fall after my own explorations of the railway.  Here’s his website you’re sure to enjoy and below is information about his presentation.

Ovens on the PADWR


Dave Battistel talk at Gunflint Lodge. Dave Battistel’s been researching the Port Arthur, Duluth, and Western railway for years now and is well-versed in the intricacies of this ill-fated railroad which traveled from modern day Thunder Bay to the Paulson Mine located just off of the Gunflint Trail. This summer, Dave gave an extremely popular talk about the railroad at Chik-Wauk and he’ll be presenting on the PAD&W again on February 9, 7:30 p.m., Gunflint Lodge Conference Center.  If you’re in the neighborhood, it’s definitely worth taking time out of your evening to attend.
