The 2017 NKPHTS Convention in Cleveland

Car 831


We're at Lakeview, Ohio, near Cleveland on what looks to feel like a crispy cold March 1, 1953, as NKP Berkshire 771 patiently steams away while in wreck-train duty. Couldn't whatever mishap prompted a work train on this day have waited for spring, only three weeks away?


A shimmering morning sun faces the pair of Alco PAs that are curving into Englewood station on Chicago's South Side on Nov. 15, 1959. The "Blue Birds" have No. 10, the New Yorker, in tow, bound for Buffalo. There, through cars will be handed over to Lackawanna train 10 for forwarding to Hoboken Terminal, serving metro New York City.
