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.

There's always hope for a return trip - but next year we're looking to visit venues that the @NickelPlate765 has never been too previously 🗺️👀 Likely won't have details until the spring, but we're hard at work planning 2020!

All tracks continue to lead downtown for Headwaters Junction and we’ll be sharing good news with Fort Wayne Leaders today at @GreaterFWInc! #riverfrontfw
