It was actually 10:30 a.m. in N. Judson, Indiana
At the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum, I fulfilled a lifelong wish to drive a train in their Guest Engineer program.
My absolute favorite part of the experience was pulling the cord to make the whistle blow. 😊

For train enthusiasts: The No. 310 was built in 1947 and is powered by a McIntosh & Seymour 539 series engine rated at 660 horsepower. It was built for the Erie and became Erie Lackawanna No. 310 in 1960. The engine was donated by Silcott Railway and arrived at the museum in 1997. It underwent an extensive overhaul and is currently operational.
The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum is dedicated to preserving the railroad history of North Judson and seeks to keep the town’s railroad heritage alive via display and operation of vintage railroad equipment atop the history rails that bend their way around the museum.
