Last Weekend of Steam in the Valley

Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 No. 765 was back in action this week pulling excursions on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.

The last public trips of the Berkshire locomotive’s annual visit to the CVSR will feature trips out of Akron today (Sept. 29) with a photo runby at Indigo Lake.

In the top two photographs above the 765 is shown steaming through Peninsula.

In the bottom photograph, CVSR FPA-4 Nos. 6777 and 6771 are shown on th rear of the train next to dome-observation-sleeper car Silver Solarium.

It’s hard to imagine they would ever be coupled to a dome from the California Zephyr.
