Wabash Completed to Ft. Wayne

Post by cjberndt » Mon Nov 28, 2016 7:53 pm

The first Wabash passenger train entered Ft. Wayne July 20, 1855, officially opening the road from Toledo to Ft. Wayne. There were two trains daily in each direction. The Ft. Wayne Sentinel, July 20, 1895, "Fortieth Anniversary."
