Organizers are offering discounts on tickets for the passenger train to the Indiana State Fair, which has seen a big drop in ridership.

The Indiana Transportation Museum started the 2-for-1 deal on advance tickets after the FairTrain drew 9,200 riders in the first nine days of the fair, down from about 13,000 riders during the first eight days last year.

Advance tickets for the train from the Fishers station will cost $11 for two adults or $5 for two children. Regular prices are $13 for adults, $6 for children.

The fair, meanwhile, is on pace to set an attendance record with its longer 17-day run that ends Sunday. Officials report a 10-day total of 620,584 visitors through Sunday. The record of 900,365 for a 12-day fair was set in 2004.
