Steam Saturday: Some May 2013 NKP 765 Favorites

Here are some favorites from the Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 No. 765 outings in late May 2013.

On Memorial Day weekend, the 765 pulled three roundtrip excursions from Lewistown to Gallitzin, Pennsylvania via Horseshoe Curve.

Jeff Troutman and I photographed the first trip on Saturday and rode the second trip on Sunday.

On Monday we set up and photographed at Horseshoe Curve before heading home.

A few days later NKP 765 worked its way home, too, to New Haven, Indiana.

In the top image, the steamer is shown at Fostoria, Pennsylvania on May 25. Next up is on Horseshoe Curve on May 27 and then in Cleveland heading westbound on May 30.
