Thank you for visiting the homepage for the Indiana Live Steamers, a group dedicated to the preservation of model steam and railroad equipment, techniques of construction and how they are operated.

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.
