“State Fair Train”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This is such a cool way to get to the State Fair. Parking is much easier the further away you are. We had a great experience, we were able to rest a bit after a busy day before we got in the car and went home. It was a lot of fun for my kids. It isn't often anymore we can travel by train for must of us.

“Great for the train lover!”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

I have always loved trains. There are some very nice historic pieces cars and locomotives. During the Indiana State Fair the "Fair Train" operates between Fishers, IN and the State Fair Grounds. They also have special ride during the holiday season and for the 4th of July. You don't want to miss the "Pizza Train" either.

“Love the train experience”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

We took the train to the Atlanta New Earth Festival and had a really nice time. The grand daughter really enjoyed her first time on a train! We intend to take a dinner train sometime soon, I think it would be a nice thing to do for a brithday. Forrest Park is an excellent park, and right outside the gates of the museum, so you can make a day of it with a picnic and a visit to see the trains!

“Indiana Transportation Museum has some room to grow”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

Have not been there in quite a while. But I am glad to read that Monon RR is still being featured. Indiana has a rich railroad history and also a great potention for passenger rail, but current INDOT impervious to requests for improvment and support of passenger rail. Governor Daniels in particular has no imagination about futrue of passenger rail in Midwest.

“Not worth a special trip”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

There's not much here that really qualifies as being museum-like. The grounds are filled with old, rusting railroad engines and cars, a handful of which are open for touring. The organization also operates special trains and these can be fun. But it's important to schedule the web site for the schedule of operations. Fortunately, we were there on a day when they were running brief train rides; without that, the visit would have been a complete waste.
