Welcome to Arbuckle's Railroad Place!
Arbuckle's is located in Noblesville, Indiana and was nicknamed "The Railroad Place" because of its unique and themed decor. The nearby Midland track bed has since been retired but the store, filled with authentic railroad memorabilia and local whimsey, stands as a tribute to the glory days of the railroad. The grounds occupy nearly a city block located in the charming "olde towne" section of Noblesville. The spacious store houses a major haul of goods for your shopping pleasure.

Preservation Alliance launches new Storyteller Series
The initial presenter is owner Robert Arbuckle, who moved his sewing machine and appliance business from the courthouse square to the current location in the mid-60's to improve parking and traffic. He has stories about hiring Railroad Girls to promote the new location, hosting sewing seminars and dances and sponsoring an ill-fated steam train ride for kids to Indianapolis that was described in the Noblesville Ledger as "bordering on mass hysteria." "We would also like to hear from any of the original railroad girls," says Corbett. "Bob says there were six of them, two high school students and four models from a Carmel modeling agency. If anyone knows how we could contact any of them, let me know and perhaps we can recruit them to speak as well." The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions after the presentation.
The event is free and open to the public. Attendees can suggest their own Noblestories subjects on a feedback sheet or by emailing the organizer. Mike Corbett can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arbuckle is joined by Tonya Marshall of Heavenly Sweets Cakes
