The Mineral Point Railroad Society is proud to announce that the Nelson Brothers will be returning to our museum this summer to present other aspects of their railroad photo collection on Saturday, September 17th at 7pm. The subject of their presentation will be photos they took of railroading in the tri-state (WI/IL/IA) area with some emphasis on SW WI.

The Mineral Point Railroad Museum was proud to host Mark and Mike Nelson's slide show on Dubuque-area and Southwestern Wisconsin railroading on October 6th, 2012. We had a very nice turnout and Mark/Mike gave a great show.

Many of the photos will be from the various railroads serving Dubuque and the surrounding areas, including the Milwaukee Road, Chicago Great Western, Illinois Central, Chicago Burlington & Quincy, Burlington Northern, and Chicago Central & Pacific. The Nelsons' program covered the period from the 1960's to the 1990's.
