The Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society paired with the Chicago Metra to bring 3,000 guests aboard a 1940s steam locomotive excursion this past weekend.
Fort Wayne’s steam locomotive no. 765 leads a round-trip excursion from Joliet to Chicago. Passengers attend a private vintage themed event in downtown Chicago. Here, guests were encouraged to wear 1940s attire while they enjoy cocktails, appetizers and live entertainment.
