Steam Saturday: NKP 765 Memories

September 12, 2020

Had this been a normal year, some railfans might have today been headed for the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad to see Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 No. 765 in action.

We can’t, of course, assume that the NKP 765 would have been in the Valley, but it seems a good bet that had there been no pandemic the steamer would have made the trip from Indiana to pull a series of excursions on the CVSR has it has done for the past several years.

All we know for certain is that there will be no steam in the Valley in 2020.

Nonetheless, we still have many memories and here are two of them.

In the top image, NKP 765 and the Nickel Plate Road heritage locomotive of Norfolk Southern are in Bucyrus on July 21, 2012.

In the bottom image, NKP 765′ and its tool car on on a ferry movement to the CVSR on Sep. 9, 2010.

It is shown on the Wheeling & Lake Erie heading east near Norwalk after having passed under the U.S. Route 20/Ohio Route 18 bridge.
