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.
