"Back on Track: Rebuilding the Waupaca Train Depot"

is set to captivate audiences as it makes its grand premiere on May 18th, 2024, at the iconic Gerold Opera House in Weyauwega, Wisconsin.

The film chronicles the remarkable saga of Mike Kirk, a devoted model train enthusiast whose unwavering determination, along with the support of a dedicated circle of family and friends, spearheaded the decades-long restoration of the long-abandoned train depot nestled in the heart of rural Waupaca. Through Kirk's indomitable spirit and vision, the Waupaca Depot emerges as a phoenix rising from literal ashes, symbolizing resilience and community revival.

"Back on Track" transcends the boundaries of a mere restoration project, delving deep into the rich tapestry of American history and the birth of rural communities. As the film unfolds, viewers are transported on an evocative journey, exploring the intertwined narratives of Kirk's personal quest and the broader narrative of American heritage.

This compelling documentary, helmed by Emmy award-winning producer Ron Scott of Ursa Major Productions and directed by debut filmmaker Max Hauser of Liminal Vision Films, promises an unforgettable journey through time and perseverance.
