An historical interpreter will also be on scene every day portraying Daniel Morgan Cook, who spent most of his younger life in the 1910s working on and around Indiana’s early trains.
The Bicentennial Train and all the activities are free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 26 through 28. The train will be located at the intersection of Superior and Buckeye streets.
The Indiana Rail Road Company and Norfolk Southern Corporation are sponsoring the event. The Kokomo stop is presented by Duke Energy, with in-kind support from the city and The Excel Center.
Additional assistance is provided by Central Railroad Company of Indianapolis, Winamac Southern Railway and U.S. Rail Corporation.
“Getting the train on the tracks takes an extraordinary effort on the part of our staff and partners, but the train and its associated activities are sure to generate a lot of enthusiasm for the bicentennial,” said John Herbst, IHS president and CEO.
