Didn’t Those Retire 30 Years Ago?

Norfolk & Western No. 1218 is westbound in Painesville station on Aug. 18, 1990.

Nickel Plate Road No. 765 is westbound at the former NKP depot in Painesville on Aug. 7, 1989. The station has since been razed.

Norfolk & Western No. 611 westbound in Painesville on June 16, 1989.

In a span of fourteen months between June 1989 to August 1990 three different steamers passed the same location. I’m sure people were saying, “I thought these things were retired 30 years ago.” Also I’m sure many people were happy to see these beauties again.
