Police say the driver took a wrong turn off Anthony Boulevard in the overnight hours.
Somehow he got on the railroad tracks and followed them for a mile and a half.
Fort Wayne police have not released the name of the car's driver, but he's lucky he wasn't hurt.
He was able to drive off the tracks while on the elevated train station.
But it sat up there until late this afternoon, leaving people wondering how he got up there in the first place.
"Well, pretty amazing. People will get where they want to go, don't they? It's amazing how they could get up there," says Harley Kolterman.
People in the parking garage north of the Ed Rousseau Center saw this interesting sight today- a car, parked next to the tracks, on the elevated platform of the old train station.
Fort Wayne police say man drove this Buick onto the train tracks at the Anthony Boulevard- Berry Street intersection late Wednesday night.
They say he was trying to detour around a water main break up the road on Wayne Street.
After driving for a bit in the dark, police say he realized he was going west on the train tracks, and saw a light behind him he thought was an oncoming train.
The man, whose name has not been released, began looking for a way off, which took him on a 1 mile trip into downtown.
Police say his front left tire blew, forcing him to stop on the platform.
He got the car off the tracks as police arrived.
People who saw the car say they're baffled.
"Probably alcohol or drugs had to be involved because it just seems totally impossible that someone would even thing that they could get up there, or even try," says Nate Woenker.
Police say they are not filing any charges, calling it an 'honest mistake.'
He contacted Norfolk Southern, who sent a crane this afternoon to move the car.
Representatives with Norfolk Southern declined comment, but say they are investigating the incident.
