Our Mission

Our mission is to provide an ongoing organized forum on the Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range Railway from a railfan and modeler perspective. This includes the collection and distribution of historical and current events information about the Missabe and its predecessors, and the industries it touches, including other mining railroads, mining operations, local industry, Great Lakes shipping, and interchange rail carriers. We share this information with our membership through our magazine ORE EXTRA. This magazine is published quarterly, to the best of our abilities. We are actively pursuing Missabe-related materials for the development of an archive. We encourage your input regarding photos, artifacts and memorabilia for purchase or donation. We solicit the input of those whose paths have crossed the Missabe, and who have the same passion to share what they have learned with others.
