Another 765 in Ohio


Nickel Plate Road steam locomotive No. 765 earlier this month completed a two-week visit to Northeast Ohio and I was going back into my archives when I ran across another 765 that I photographed in Ohio this past summer.

On a Sunday in mid July fellow Akron Railroad Club member Peter Bowler and I were exploring the Chicago Line of Norfolk Southern when we stopped in Pettisville to wait for some action.

On the radio I heard a train that called itself 765 calling signals, which turned out to be a westbound coal hoppers train. It would be the only train we would see here as traffic had diminished for the time being.

I am not sure if the 765 the train was announcing was the train symbol or locomotive number. Note that 765 is part of the number of this BNSF diesel.
