DULUTH, Minn. (AP) More than a year after severe flooding in the Duluth area halted tours of a popular scenic railroad, the train is once again chugging along its tracks.

The Lake Superior & Mississippi Railroad resumed service on Saturday.

The nonprofit railroad offers trips on 6.1 miles of track between the Irving and Gary-New Duluth neighborhoods. The service was stopped last year after the tracks and bridges were damaged in the June 2012 flooding.

The train is now making twice-daily trips on Saturdays and Sunday. Each trip lasts about 1 hour, 40 minutes.

The railroad is honoring all 2012 tickets and is offering buy-one-get one coupons throughout the 2013 season, which ends Oct. 13.
