Pleasant Lake structure will become headquarters, boarding site for Indiana Rail Experience
PLEASANT LAKE, Ind. — The Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society has acquired the 141-year-old railroad station in Pleasant Lake to serve as headquarters for the Indiana Rail Experience, the tourist rail partnership of the society and the short line Indiana Northeastern Railroad.
The acquisition was made possible through a grant to develop a station and boarding site in Steuben County. While the station’s interior is largely preserved, the structure will likely receive improvements including a new platform, lighting, other amenities, and cosmetic and structural improvements over the next year.
Fundraising for the project is now underway at the society website; the non-profit organization is also seeking the donation of furniture, materials, and other objects
