PENINSULA, Ohio — More people visited the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad than ever in 2016. According to the non-profit tourist railroad, more than 214,000 passengers visited the railroad last year. It is the highest number of visitors in the railroad’s 44-year history.

The majority of passengers rode the train during the railroad’s normal operating season.

In 2016, the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society partnered with the tourist railroad to offer steam trips behind Nickel Plate Road No. 765 – which spent much of last summer disguised as Nickel Plate No. 767.

In addition, the railroad says that its Polar Express venue brought in more than 42,000 passengers during the 2016 holiday season.
