The Heartnut festival was great this year, even though it was a one day event we had a great turnout :) A special thanks go out to all of the die hard people who came out on Sunday to ride with us..

We will be doing an additional special public run day on the Saturday the 16th of September, 2017 from Noon until 4pm. The regular club meeting will be held Saturday the 16th at 10:00 AM in the club building. Hope to see every one there.

Also coming up will be our last public run for 2017 on October 21st from Noon until 4pm. Put it on your calendars and come out and see us. The regular club meeting will be held Saturday the 21st at 10:00 AM in the club building

The primary focus of this group is a 7 1/2 inch gauge railroad; however, activities throughout the year will attract people with interests in other areas.  

Please visit us on Facebook


There are also other antique or steam powered machinery events at JCP.

 Please see the calendar page for more information on the activities planned throughout the year.

The group welcomes all visitors.  The third Saturday afternoon of most months between May and October is reserved for hauling the general public on our track.

 The Public Rides page has more detailed information about these events.

Of course, there is plenty of room for fellow live steamers who wish to come and visit.  We trust that this website has all of the necessary information to make your visit an enjoyable one.  We will list formal run meets on the Calendar Page and send out invitations for operational meets.

There is other information on the website, such as track tours, pictures of various events, club members equipment, and club member projects, feel free to look around.


 For those of you who have an interest or have considered getting into the live steam railroading hobby, there is information for you too.  It is easier and less expensive to build equipment than many people realize.  We are always looking for new members and offer our knowledge to help newcomers to build the equipment of their choice. We hope you will want to join our club.  

Whomever you are, the Indiana Live Steamers hope you enjoy our site and visit it often.  The club is committed to keeping this site updated and available.

We hope to see you soon.
