Sunday with NKP 765 in Bellevue

This past Sunday I was at the Berkshires in Bellevue event with my brother-in-law Karl West, his son (my nephew) Owen, and Jeff Troutman.

What had been forecast as an all-day rain turned out party cloudy and some sun the whole time we were there.

We had four tickets to ride in the cupola in Nickel Plate caboose 783 on the 1 p.m. shuttle behind with NKP 2-8-4 No. 765.

On an adjacent track on static display was NKP Berkshire-type No. 757, which I photographed from the caboose cupola.

I had two tickets for the 2 p.m. NKP 765 cab ride which I shared with Owen. We both enjoyed the experience.

After our shuttle excursions we visited the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum. Shown are images made from the cab of former Wabash F7 No. 671 and former NKP GP30 No. 900.

 It’s great to have some fantastic railroad museums that far from home.
