The Indiana Rail Experience will return in 2023.

Join our mailing list for a year of exciting train rides and events.

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.

The Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society honors this incredible history through its educational experiences, passenger train excursions, and the operation of one of the last surviving steam locomotives in the world: Nickel Plate Road no. 765.
