Based in New Haven, Indiana, just outside of Fort Wayne, Indiana, is Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society, Inc. FWRHS is probably best known for NKP 765, a Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 Berkshire steam locomotive, currently under steam.

FWRHS also operates a Davenport Locomotive Works DE44 44-ton diesel switcher. It is frequently used as power for caboose rides, featuring Wabash Railroad caboose no. 2543. No. 2543 was built around the turn of the century (circa 1905) and contains a coal stove built at a Fort Wayne foundry and a sink and water tank were apparently added during its service life.

FWRHS possesses other rolling stock in various states of preservation, including a "big hook" heavy duty crane.

These photographs were taken during a FWRHS open house in October, 2010.
