Steam Saturday: NKP 765 on ex-AC&Y

The wayback machine has taken us back to June 25, 1983. We’re on the former Akron, Canton & Youngstown mainline, which is now owned by the Wheeling & Lake Erie. Here comes Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 No. 765 running westbound out of Akron. Just as quickly as it came it’s gone with only a bit of coal smoke lingering in the air. But what a sight it was.
