That’s The Way I’ve Always Heard it Should Be

For the Boston Mill photo runbys of the last excursion of Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 No. 765 during its two-week visit to the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, the photographers were given a treat.

FPA-4 No. 6777, which was coupled on the north end of the train to the Silver Solarium dome-observation car, was dropped off and the train ran past the crowd with the observation car uncovered.

It was the first time to my knowledge that the CVSR did that during the 765’s visit since the first excursion a week earlier for CVSR volunteers and members.

CVSR trains operate in pull-pull fashion with motive power on both ends of the train. Thus sightings of the Silver Solarium operating uncovered are bound to be rare.
