Won’t See This Anymore in Medina

September 19, 2019

Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 No. 765 is back in Northeast Ohio but the days of seeing it coming into Akron on the Wheeling & Lake Erie are over.

The W&LE is no longer handling the ferry move of the Lima-built Berkshire locomotive.

But that won’t stop us from cranking up the not so way back machine for a trip to the not too distant past.

Paul Woodring and Bob Farkas were in Medina on Sept. 9, 2010, when this backlit shot of NKP 765 and W&LE SD40 No. 4000 was made.

Now the 765 uses a combination of Norfolk Southern and CSX tracks in Cleveland to reach the CVSR.
