This year’s murder mystery excursion on the North Shore Scenic Railroad is presented by Upstage Productions of St. Louis. The event takes passengers on “a murderously funny ride with a five-course meal.” The two-and-a-half-hour murder mystery train runs August 15–19 and 22–26. A prize is awarded to the best detective on each train.
For all the information and to make reservations call the North Shore Scenic Railroad at 218-722-1273 or 800-423-1273 or visit duluthtrains.com.
Traveling by train can be fun, romantic, and sometimes dangerous. Take the case of the North Shore Scenic Railroadʹs Elegant Dinner Train. A group of people, most of whom are strangers to one another, sit down to a gourmet meal in the beautiful Lake of the Isles dining car. As the train pulls out of the Depot in Duluth and heads onto the Lakefront Line, the guests in the dining car meet one another and find there is something just a little off balance. An air of mystery surrounds the alter‐egos of some of the passengers.
Almost as if planned to the exact minute, the train crosses Railroad Street and the diesel engine’s horn blares out its warning … a shot rings out! One of the passengers has met a cruel and quite fatal end. For the remainder of the evening, your job is to solve the crime and deliver the guilty party to authorities by the time the train returns to the station. Of course, because this is a sophisticated and elegant evening, dinner and cocktails will continue as if there is nothing wrong. Fortunately, there is a world famous detective on board to assist in finding the guilty party.
It’s an evening of mirth, merriment and mayhem on the Disoriented Express!
