“All Aboard” Railroad Drama

“All Aboard” is the Outdoor Drama that will be performed on the Linden Depot Museum grounds Saturday, August 17 at 2 pm, with a rain date of Sunday, August 18.  The script has been written by a local playwright, Dr. Louis Janeira, who is a cardiologist at Franciscan Hospitals, and a published author of mystery novels.  Dr. Janeira has two additional plays being performed this summer in Carmel and in Indianapolis.

The drama will re-create a moment in time when the railroad, which had just been invented, was beginning to replace the horse as the standard mode of transportation. This play is centered around the full-sized replica of an 1837 Norris 4-2-0 steam engine that the museum volunteers have been constructing for the past year.  This engine incorporated all of the best features of steam engines at this time and set the standards for subsequent steam engines.  Those attending the drama will be treated to an up-close view of this historic engine.  This replica has been constructed to match the exact dimensions of the original engine.
