Life Begins at 40 (DVD)


In 1984, Nickel Plate Road Berkshire No. 765 was 40 years old. The big locomotive celebrated her birthday as the star of the 1984 NRHS convention in Cincinnati, Ohio. In this video you’ll see the 765 deadheading from Bellevue to Cincinnati, double-headed with Norfolk & Western steam locomotive no. 611, see the 765 pulling trips on former Louisville & Nashville, Chesapeake & Ohio, Baltimore & Ohio, and Norfolk & Western trackage. This scenic part of the country, with mountains, tunnels and long bridges, features the 765 in all her glory. This DVD is also a wonderful tribute to the dedicated crew of volunteers who keep this big Berkshire running. 60 minutes. Please allow up to 3 weeks for shipping.
