In 1984, Nickel Plate Road Berkshire No. 765 was 40 years old. The big 2-8-4 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, doubleheaded with Norfolk & Western 4-8-4 No. 611! Then you’ll see the 765 pulling trips on former L&N, C&O, B&O, and N&W trackage. This is a very scenic part of the country, with mountains, tunnels and long bridges, and you’ll see 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.
