June 30, 2015

Nickel Plate Road No. 765 will team up with the Steamtown National Historic Site, Norfolk Southern and the Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Historical Society to raise money for the restoration of another Lima-built steam locomotive.

Proceeds from the Sept. 12 and 13 trips behind Nickel Plate Berkshire Scranton to Binghamton, New York, and return will benefit the restoration of Boston & Maine No. 3713, a 4-6-2 in the Steamtown collection.

The excursions are also being used to mark the 100th anniversary of the Tunkhannock Viaduct. For ticket information, go to www.laurellinesspecials.org.
