Re: Chessie Steam Special

I had forgotten about the internet.

Can anyone tell me if the train visited the Fort Wayne area?

Thanks..

A few years past I purchased slides from an estate of a local railfan.
I have two slides taken of the jet train. (enclosed)
I have no information about the location etc.
