The Lincoln Inaugural Train 2011


PRESS RELEASE


The Passenger Train Historical Society (PTHS), an organization devoted to the study and preservation of the history of railroad passenger train service in North America, is planning a reenactment of a critical historical event in American history. President-elect Abraham Lincoln's Inaugural Train operated on a route which Lincoln called a “winding way” enroute from Springfield, Illinois, to Washington D. C. in February of 1861. The train traveled 1,904 miles from Illinois through Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland while enroute to Washington D. C.

This event celebrates more than 150 years of American and passenger train history. To commemorate the historical operation of this train, railroads and private rail car owners are invited to participate along with State, County and Municipal historical societies to plan and coordinate state and local activities.

Presently, preliminary plans are being considered in the following cities: Springfield, Illinois; Indianapolis, Indiana; Columbus, Alliance, Ravenna, Hudson, and Cleveland, Ohio; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Other cities are encouraged to propose activities to commemorate this historical event.

Sponsors are needed to support the various educational aspects of this event to promote an understanding of our historical past.
