We are proud caretakers of history that inspires the senses and quickens the pulse. Climb aboard.

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.

Here's what made the Nickel Plate Road so critical to the towns it served. Thanks to railroad employees everywhere for continuing to serve in this important role today with the same "quiet pride" the Nickel Plate had. #throwback

Effective today, the @FortWayneRails facility in New Haven, Indiana is closed to the public until April 7th. Stay safe friends and limit your exposure.
