Front: Atlanta, Indiana has played host to an amazing variety of trains since the Indiana Transportation Museum began operations on the former Indianapolis Division trackage through town. On October 1, 2005, restored NKP GP7 426 is right at home on a Society Convention Special, while NKP car 1 carries the markers on a beautiful day.

Back: Restored and freshly painted, NKP 1 forms a suitable backdrop for attendees at the 2005 NKPHTS Convention. The 1929-built car 1, acquired by the Indiana Transportation Museum, has become the crown jewel in their collection, and played a prominent part in this year's Society gathering.
