At the turn of the 20th Century, Fort Wayne, Indiana was one of the most industrious railroad towns in the Midwest. Connected by rail to every major city in the nation, it was also home to high speed passenger trains and the revered steam locomotive.

Now, the Fort Wayne 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.

Look what's coming to our 2019 Open House! Historic Lehigh Valley Coal no. 126 will be operating our caboose trains all weekend. Tickets are now on sale!

Finally got around to editing my photos from last year's @FortWayneRails open house just in time for this year's open house. This is by far one of my favourite captures of @NickelPlate765. My next goal is to make it to #SteamInTheValley at @CVSRR
