FlaglerTour

Saturday, September 16, 2017 only. Don’t miss this rare opportunity!

Officially known as Florida East Coast Railroad’s No. 90, this car is considered to be one of the most beautiful rail cars ever built. Built as part of a wedding present for Standard Oil founder Henry Flagler’s wife; this car was constructed with the finest materials found worldwide in 1898, including African blonde mahogany as well as Tiffany & Co. stained glass. This car has seen many famous events including the Olympics and Kentucky Derby. In the 20th Century, this car spent time on the short line known as the Central Indiana that ran through Noblesville, crossing the Nickel Plate railroad.

You can tour this historic marvel at the Museum’s Forest Park Facility in Noblesville as a static display. Tours will be from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Caboose Rides as well as advocates from the Save the Nickel Plate group will also be present.

Museum admission this day is Free.
