It's a story compelling enough that Dover Harbor, and No. 765, are mentioned together as the class of the train in a Ft. Wayne Journal-Gazette Newspaper Article this morning, July 18th.
Aboard Dover Harbor our Chef and Porters will be providing "First-Class" service in the best traditions of the Pullman Company and the "Golden Age of Railroading." Aboard our coaches our mechanical team will be making sure everything is running smoothly. All of our team, all volunteers, traveled to the heartland to make this trip a success and will be traveling with our cars for the next six weeks. But even more significant was the hundreds of hours of preparation it took by our volunteers to get our cars ready for this wonderful opportunity to expand the public's appreciation of railroading through preservation, education, and of course "Train riding."
Through labor day weekend our cars will be operating with No. 765 over a series of additional trips out of Youngstown, Ohio, Buffalo, NY, Allentown, PA and Scranton, PA. For more information, see the FWRHS web site.
