Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum was founded in 1961 in Chattanooga to create
an interpretive operating museum of historic equipment and artifacts in an
authentic setting. Today it operates an extensive schedule of historic and
scenic trains in Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia, supported by its
East Chattanooga shop facility. TVRM is the largest operating historical
excursion railroad in the Southeast. In 2012, more than 100,000 people visited
the museum or rode on TRVM-sponsored 21^st Century Steam excursions.
The Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society was formed in 1972 with the goal of
saving Nickel Plate Road steam locomotive 765 from rusting away in a city
park. The organization was successful in restoring the locomotive to
operation. The engine first ran again on Sept. 1, 1979. Since then, NKP 765
has operated on over a dozen different railroads from New York City to Rock
Island, Illinois, hauling more than 250,000 passengers on excursion trains
covering over 50,000 miles of operation. In 1986 FWRHS bought the locomotive
from the City of Fort Wayne.
21^st Century Steam is a partnership between Norfolk Southern and TVRM to
operate steam-powered excursions throughout the territory Norfolk Southern
serves. More information is available on the 21^st Century Steam website at
