Nickel Plate Road No. 765, operating as NKP 767 will be back in action today and the Akron Railroad Club is going to have a picnic to celebrate.

Chef Marte (a.k.a. Marty Surdyk) will be serving up hamburgers and hot dogs at the Valley Picnic Area between noon and 3 p.m. It is located south of Peninsula on the west side of Riverview Road along the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad tracks.

NKP 767 will be pulling trips out of Akron departing at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. It will be the last weekend for steam excursions behind the 767 this year on the CVSR.
