Nickel Plate Summer
During the summer of 1988, the Norfolk Southern Railroad started operating steam-power excursions system-wide. This program highlights two massive steam locomotives, NKP 765 and N&W 1218. Both locomotives ran the ex-Nickel Plate Road main between Bellevue, Ohio and Buffalo, New York. You'll see the locomotives on many of the NKP's bridges as the run this famous mainline route.
