43 years ago, the Mighty Fitz left the Duluth/Superior harbor on her eternal voyage. The Karl Uthaug was scratchbuilt in her likeliness. Although not intended to be an exact replica, she does resemble the Fitz. The Uthaug was named for my great grandfather who also passed away on the Great Lakes. The Republic of Trainworld pays homage to the great sailors who continue to sail and those whom have passed.
