    75th Berkday Party

    August 17, 2019 3:30PM & 6:00PM

    Join the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum in celebrating the 75th birthday of Nickel Plate Road No.757!

    Our party will begin in the New York Central Freight House with a program explaining the history of the 757, how it came back to Bellevue recently, and how the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum plans to display and use the locomotive in the future. Then step into our 1927 Nickel Plate dining car to enjoy a BBQ Buffet and Birthday Cake. Next, you'll be free to explore the locomotive while museum volunteers are available for Q&A. For the first time ever, guests will have access to the inside of the locomotive cab.
