Once home to the largest railroad terminal on the Nickel Plate Road, Berkshires in Bellevue will pay tribute to the town's industrious railroad history and feature the reunion of two classic Nickel Plate icons: operating steam locomotive no. 765 and no. 757, the latter of which is on static display.

Featuring steam-powered caboose rides, cab rides, hands-on experiences, special banquets, and an exclusive night photo session, this event is ideal for both the railroad fan and families alike. Click here information and tickets. Click here for Frequently Asked Questions about the event.
