Freight on the Plate?
« on: September 02, 2010, 07:24:29 PM »
Has ITM ever run a freight train just for pics?  Are there any plans to do so?  It'd sure look good cutting through Noblesville and would be a neat First Friday.

ITM has run photo freights, and the last photo freight ran in 2007 I think. You CAN charter a train, for about 2000 dollars I believe, or whatever what you want to do costs different prices. If you call 1-317-773-6000, the ITM number between 9 and 3 on weekdays, you could probably get some information on charters. It has happened, but only for charters.

HA! I'm afraid I'll have to settle my interest by serving as a new volunteer at ITM.

Great!

Perhaps the ITM ops department would like to put together a photo freight special for next year, as it is the 50th anniversary of the museum.  Maybe you can help out :)

I was hoping something like that could be done.  Even if it just went through the square a few times.
