Another Sunday with NKP 765

The ferry move to Akron steams though Brecksville.

Steaming through Sand Run Metropark in Akron during the ferry move on Sunday morning.

The last excursion of NKP 765’s two-week stay on the CVSR blasts through Jaite en route to the photo runbys at Boston Mill.

Ursula and I arrived at Ohio 82 in Brecksville close to 8 a.m. to catch the ferry move of Nickel Plate 765 and its train to Akron.

We were able to set up first at the white chains since the rest of the crowd hadn’t shown up yet.

I decided photographing from the Station Road bridge with the reflection or what used to be a

reflection shot because of the tree growth and the Route 82 arches.

By the time the train showed up at about 8:55 a.m. the crowd of photographers next to us and behind us was substantial.

We made it to Big Bend with about three minutes to spare. The traffic light at Merriman and Portage Path was the big culprit.

After the train passed I hurried  to the car to get to mass at a church I found on Portage Path in Cuyahoga Falls.

The bottom photograph is the after trip from Akron coming south at Jaite. I was standing right along the chain.
