587: The Great Train Robbery

After crashing his homemade soapbox racer through an old wooden fence, Alex discovers a fully-functional steam locomotive, The 587, destined for the scrap heap. He and his sister, Molly, devise a plan to rescue the antique engine with the help of an old engineer, Russell, his dog, Sparky, and about every kid in the neighborhood!

587 was filmed at the Indiana Transportation Museum, Fishers Train Station, Noblesville, Castleton and Downtown Indianapolis.

The train used in the film is Nickel Plate Road No. 587, a coal-burning steam locomotive built in September 1918 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

During its 37 year career on the Nickel Plate, No.587 was a frequent visitor to Indianapolis, on the route to Michigan City via Castleton and Noblesville. The locomotive was retired in March 1955.
