Preserving and Making Railroad History

An all-volunteer, award winning non-profit, the railroad historical society offers outstanding, educational experiences through the operation of one of the last surviving steam locomotives in the world: Nickel Plate Road no. 765. We are proud caretakers of history that inspires the senses and quickens the pulse.

Climb aboard and listen for the whistle.
