Geocache Description:

Please obey all park rules. No need to climb. Cache contains only a log scroll and pencil, no room for trade items.

This small park hosts a train and a kiosk describing the role Mr. Fauley and the railroad played in saving lives during the Cloquet fire.

The cache is dedicated to our dearly departed grandparents, (of Cloquet) who's geocaching handles might have been Louie-Bird & Ma, had they been born in another time. Ma had worked for The "D&NE", which is short for Duluth & Northeastern R.R. line.

Built as a logging railroad and later served a paper mill in Cloquet, the D&NE stayed with steam longer than U.S. main line railroads, and made the last steam runs in 1960.

Also of interest:
Kitty-corner (across Hwy. 33) to this park, is "The world's only Frank Lloyd Wright designed gas station!"

Thanks to sunrisers & Gone Astray for helping on this one.
