Logansport Chosen as New Location for Indiana Transportation Museum

At a news conference this afternoon, Mayor Dave Kitchell and Indiana Transportation Museum board of directors chairman John McNichols announced that Logansport has been chosen as a new location for the museum’s trains, rolling stock and excursions. The mayor said as the Indiana Transportation Museum refocuses on education, it stands to reason that the museum and Logansport could potentially be a destination for day trips for Indiana schools and families and more tourism dollars coming into the community. Logansport’s rich history as a railroad town and existing railroad facilities made it an outstanding choice for the museum’s new location. The announcement came on what was, for twenty years, the starting day of the former Logansport Iron Horse Festival.
