From the mid 1850's till the late 1920's, an estimated 100,000 homeless children were sent by train from New York City to small towns and farms in the Midwest hoping to place them with caring families. This is the story of 14 orphan children, going West, dreaming of a better life. The Orphan Train itself is real; the route it takes & the place names are fictional.
