Indiana Transportation Museum train leaves track in Noblesville, no injuries reported


Approximately 200 were on board the Polar Bear Express train when two wheels derailed the track near downtown Noblesville Friday night. Officials said there were no injuries in the incident.

The train is run by the Indiana Transportation Museum in Noblesville. It was returning to Fishers Friday night and had just crossed the White River near the Courthouse Square when the wheels left the track. Buses shuttled passengers back to the Fishers Train Station where the trip originated.

This is the second incident in the past two months for ITM trains.

On Nov. 8 an ITM train was involved in a fatal crash when a 17-year-old driver disregarded warning signals and pulled in front of the train at a Tipton intersection. Officials determined all lights and audible warning devices were working for both the train and the crossing.
