Tickets for this weekend’s excursions on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad behind Nickel Plate Road No. 767 are sold out.

CVSRTaylor Nickel, communications manager for the CVSR told Trains magazine that the excursions have drawn passengers from throughout the country and not just Ohio.

“[Cuyahoga Valley] is one of the best venues around to exhibit and operate the 765,” said Kelly Lynch, vice president of the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society, which owns the 2-8-4 Berkshire-type locomotive, whose actual roster number is 765.

Lynch said the variety of trips, the railroad, its employees and volunteers, and the opportunities for passengers to experience the engine are incomparable.

“Compared to a mainline steam excursion where we handle all of the logistics, these are almost vacations for us,” he said.

There will be two excursions on Saturday, leaving Rockside Road station at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. On Sunday trips will leave Akron at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

All excursions last for two hours and include a photo runby at Boston Mill.
