TOLONO -- People gathered to see a piece of American history making its way around the country. Steam engine #765 is still chugging along after 68-years.

This kind of train hasn't been used since the late 50's. This one is usually parked as a tourist attraction in Fort Wayne, IN.

It will travel 4,000 miles to celebrate Norfolk Southern's 30th anniversary.
