8u 1828 still looking good at her new home on the Grenada Railway in Mississippi.
Robert I. Warick took these terrific photos, the first being NKP #765 at Owosso, Michigan on 10-10-09 . The steam engine #765 arrived on the CVSR (Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railway) in mid September and Robert caught some of the CVSR and B&O Alco's as well from August in Canton and Akron, OH.
Michael K. Fair provided the following photos chasing NKP 765 on the CVSR for 3 weeks then up to Michigan (unconfirmed). Started out at Port Clinton, Ohio and then on to Bellevue, Ohio. Before 765 showed up, there were several trains that ran including 2 Wheeling and Lake Erie trains. He had thought that the Wheeling would tow the 765 to the CSRV, but alas, it ran under it own power after NS 7051 was cut off. He had waited and waited for this one, and finally at 2:45 PM it showed up. He was going to chase it to Monroeville, Ohio, but ended up getting lost on the chase. He then decided to head back and get some chow, and have a look at that way the pictures would be on the computer. These pics are from the Lake connection in Bellevue, and that last one is a broadside of the 765 with the support car. It was a dream to finally see the photographs and feel the rumble from a 66 year old fire breathing machine!
