Re: GTL - The NKP Edition - By Henry on 04/26/16 at 11:42:23 - 'NKP_GTL2.jpg' 74 KB
This is a shot of a fairly well known NKP location. Despite the fact that within a 1/2 mile of the photographer many different railroads own trackage, most of which interchange with the NKP, only two are visible in this photo.
 
GTL!

Re: GTL - The NKP Edition - By L. Winston Ogle on 04/22/16 at 11:25:21 - 'NKP-3.jpg' 77 KB
So for this GTL, here your clue............You may have heard of cities/towns like Philadelphia, PA and Adelphia, NJ, but Annadelphia? Probably not.............
 
Not only that, but a town at almost the exact end of the state this is in, has the SAME name, just in a different county! (Make sure you use the right zip code!)
 
So, c'mon people now, get together and try to GTL!
 
Don't let Henry have all the fun, LOL!

Re: GTL - The NKP Edition - By Henry on 04/05/16 at 13:02:33 - 'OakHarborOverUnder_09-03-01_JHPD30_2099.jpg' 155 KB
Oak Harbor is the right place. I don't know what industry had that smokestack, it is long gone and my Sanborn maps for Oak Harbor don't go that far north. Most of the stuff in that immediate vicinity are grain related. An elevator and co-ops. Ottawa County Farm Bureau Co-Op and Oak Harbor Co-Op. NYC had some stock pens. I had wondered about that stack too. On the NYC line CP 266 is close to the overpass, CP 267 is the new Oak Harbor Connection to the wheeling and CP 268 is the crossovers at Rocky Ridge. This was one of my favorite railfanning areas when I was living in Port Clinton, OH (10 miles east) for several years. We even tried to buy the farm house between the NYC and Wheeling lines where a locomotive's headlight on the Connection shines right through the living room windows!
 
I am starting to doubt this photo is Oak Harbor a bit. Although it was passed along to me as "2-8-4 Oak Harbor 1956" I am thinking that the NYC depot should be visible under the bridge and I cannot account for the smokestack. It does look like an NKP berk, but the bridge style is different and I have no idea if the bridge would have been replaced between 1956 and 2000, but I sort of doubt it.
 
Here's the only over-under I was able to get here. You can barely see the CP 266 signals under the bridge. The NYC depot is in the foreground. Photo is from September 3, 2001 shot with my trusty Canon D30.

Re: GTL - The NKP Edition - By Raritan Clunker on 04/05/16 at 10:50:18 - 'NKP-2.jpg' 107 KB
So, am I on the right track?
 
Looking at current satellite imagery doesn't help too much when you're looking at ROWs that aren't ID'd for former ownership, if they're there at all.....But it WAS fun to see what is and isn't there! One question though.....If I AM right, where did the smoke stack go that's in the background? I can't seem to locate it or the remnants of where an industry that big might have been.

Re: GTL - The NKP Edition - By Henry on 03/30/16 at 12:13:56 - 'NKP_GTL.jpg' 107 KB
Here's one from the days of steam. That's an NKP Berk on the NKP bridge. The tracks below are not Nickel Plate. This is not a particularly famous location, but it well known by many railfans. Both lines exist today and I have even caught an over-under at this location!
 
I have a feeling some hints will be needed and I have plenty of them waiting

Well, since nobody wants to play along with Henry and myself, I'll close this one out. You're looking at Train #10, the Blue Dart that ran from St. Louis, MO to Cleveland, OH.......
 
"This was the only Nickel Plate passenger train to operate over all three predecessor (NKP, Lake Erie & Western, Cloverleaf) railroads ...running on the NKP  from Cleveland to Arcadia OH, on the LE&W from Arcadia to Frankfort  IN, and  on the Cloverleaf from Frankfort IN.  to St Louis."....

GTL - The NKP Edition - By Bridge 1A on 01/12/16 at 11:56:45 - 'NKP1.jpg' 76 KB
Oh, thank the Nickel-plated Gods, GTL has finally come to this forum!
 
While my working knowledge of the NKP is limited to the Bellevue OH to E. St. Louis IL route (the old Clover Leaf), I've always had an interest in the NKP, especially as it involves the interchange with the "Northeast Roads" via Buffalo and the Alphbet Route via Connellsville PA.
 
So, without any further adeu, let's get ready to GTL!  
 
Your clue? While the town took it's name from the County it is in, the name of the County comes from those first settler's homeland.

Re: NKP in Michigan City. Indiana - By chessie8212 on 10/09/06 at 13:00:46 - 'Michigan_City_NKP.GIF' 99 KB
Ned-
 
I was able to find the following from a Topozone map.  The railroad in yellow was labelled as N&W, which I assume was the original NKP line.  The blue line was labelled as Conrail.  There is a possible wye track on the NKP in the circled area.
 
Again, not sure if this is an answer to your question as I don't know if this was in fact a wye for turning locomotives, but it at least provides a possibility.

Re: NKP 211 City of Lima Restoration Progress - By njmidland on 07/27/06 at 14:46:12 - 'paint1.jpg' 56 KB
I am happy to announce that as of today there is one more Nickel Plate Road passenger car in its NKP paint!  As I mentioned several weeks ago, the Erie Lackawanna Dining Car Preservation Society’s is in the process of repainting the “City of Lima” one of the Pullman 10-6 sleepers purchased by the Nickel Plate Road in 1950.  Here are two photos of the car receiving the blue paint and lettering.  
 
We are on schedule to have the City of Lima in Scranton in September.  If we are successful then a Nickel Plate Road passenger car will ride the Lackawanna rails as they did from 1950 until 1964.  More importantly the first ELDCPS car will be “home”.
 
Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far to make this happen.  Since we have been raising money for this car separately from the money raised for EL dining cars 741 and 470, the funding to finish the interior work (new carpet, upholstery, etc.) and to move this car is really going to be close.  If you would like to help see this car return to Scranton ready to operate in its Nickel Plate Road appearance, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to ELDCPS.  We still have several special naming programs associated with NKP 211.  Please visit our website LINK URL
Or you can send a donation to ELDCPS, P.O. Box 5821, Parsippany, NJ 07054.  If we are successful in getting the car to Scranton in September, we will set up some opportunities for donors and members to come see the car.
 
Regards,
Tim Stuy
Secretary - ELDCPS

Re: 759 on the Central Vermont - By JhnZ33 on 04/29/06 at 22:49:26 - 'RedT.gif' 82 KB
The video still needs to be tweaked in color, contrast, brightness and detail yet. To give you an idea of what the film looks like in it's raw form I have attached a comparison photo.  
 
The film has a VERY bad red tint shift which needs to be color-corrected and cleaned up to get a good picture out of it. Check the photo

Just thought I'd post a few pics of frame grabs from super 8mm film I am currently converting to video of the 759 on an excursion on the Western Maryland line.
 
When I finish converting the footage and sweeten it up, I will share some clips.

Re: What is the deal with NKP#44 - By NKPgator on 02/16/06 at 21:29:34 - 'nkp-s1-42.jpg' 215 KB
Yes I do recall a day back when a freind said he'd found a NKP locomotive. I'd not yet heard of Wellington or the #384. We pulled up on that north side of 18 iin some factory's parking lot. From our perspective I saw no "No Trespassing" signs so I broke out the camera and started shooting,it was a beautiful day for it and the light was right for it. I'm too used to having unrestricted access to MR&NKP's coach yards,I thought their "yards" was just the same. In a way it was cool that I did not get run off until after I'd shot up #384{and the last of my film} So now I know not to go looking around without permission, I wish I had a scanner so I could post the results,some shots look like post cards. A unposted responce asked if I was a N&S employee, I wish, the doctor laughs when I ask him to sign off on the physical exam.
The N&S would not knowingly employ a guy with a rebuilt back and legs no matter how well I've recovered. So I am a railfan, that job does not pay{ In fact I pay,and pay and pay} But I have been a railfan sense I was 3,I've got a Poleroid of me with my first Loinel at 3 years old. Moving to bellevue at age 5 did not help much as my backyard had full veiw of  all the tracks surounding Wheeling Tower. Was broke then and not much has changed in that respect.
I do want to thank"Hostler" for that link,yes it worked fine. I now have a good photo of #44 in NKP colors. Its a funny thing I think that the link sight asked the question if the centered headlight was a NKP modification. I can give that answer in a photo I have of #42 {thanks again Bud}

Centered in Cleveland,  Lakeview Cemetery is the resting place for Oris P. and Mantis J. Van Sweringen who in 1916 took control of the Nickle Plate after NYC sold it to them. On a recent visit to Lakeview I came across their grave, brothers buried side by side.

Today I went to New Haven with my dad and my older brother to see the 765 under steam for the first time in years.
 
It's a special locomotive for my father, as his uncle was a Berk engineer on the NKP when he was a kid.  His uncle used to take him to the Bellevue roundhouse and always made sure to have a signature whistle for when he went past my dad's house in Green Springs, OH.  It was that steam engine (Berkshires in general really) that made my father fall in love with trains.  And it was the 765 that my father took my oldest brother (who is now 27) to see when he was just 5 years old.  And again, the Berk stole the heart of another young kid.  So the NKP Berks (and 765 in particular) holds a strong meaning to our family.
 
But story aside, here's a photo collection from today's open house.  Hope you enjoy!
 
First is the classic head on shot.

This morning, on a trip from Illinois to a church conference in Harrisburg, we drove by the Fort Wayne RR Historical Society. They were loading coal into No. 765's tender in preparation for a boiler test tomorrow (Monday, July 25). I snapped several digital photos, including this one. The locomotive hasn't run since 1993, I was told. I saw it some time in the 1980s. It looks like it may run again in the near future! -- Dr. Richard Leonard

Hello there,   I could not help but join in with a photo of an outing my family and I attended in 1998 at the New Jersey Live Steamers grounds located in Liberty Corners, New Jersey. It was at a Central Railroad of New Jersey's Historical Society and CNJ Veterans (the oldest railroad veterans group in America) annual picnic at the grounds. Here is a photo of NKP 757 - enjoy.

A wonderful head-on photo of NKP Berk #743 in all her smoky glory taken in 1956. Location and photographer not known.
 
Diesel locomotives are now facing scrutiny and attack for pollution. Could you imagine the field day environmental groups would have with steam locomotives today ?

Here's my last one. I wish that I could have taken more that  day, but it was a very hot, very humid day and I just had to crawl somewhere to cool off. I bet the train crew must have lost 20 pounds just firing up #765 that day!

Hello, I stumbled across from the CNJ Forum and saw that you had some words and pictures of NKP #765. I thought I would share some photo's of when this engine participated in "Garden State in 88" the NRHS Convention for that year. These photos were taken at the CNJ's BoundBrook Station which is now a restaurant. Enjoy !

It's been told to me that this caboose parked at Hach Industries in Painesville, Ohio is #200. At one time she had the lettering for the NKP but bad paint forced them to paint over them.

Wow, they've really let her go, because here she is almost 20 years later, covered in rust and dust.

This shot captures the #765 running at speed approaching the 39th Street crossing in Charleston (Kanawha City) in 1986. This was a great location to watch her approach because of an exceptionally long tangent appx two miles after departing the Charleston Station.You could her cadence and speed increase as she came closer into view.  
    I admire diesels as I do steam but no diesel locomotive can compare to the spectacle and sound of a steam locomotive running at speed.

Front view at Hinton in 1986. Lots of curious onlookers in the yard this day to watch this living machine get her replenishment.

This view of the #765 also includes some of the yard at Hinton. Sure have a soft spot for all that Chessie paint that I took for granted in 1986, too.

This is one of my favorite shots of the #765 because she is sans the passenger cars in this photo. She is being serviced at Hinton, WV for the return trip west to Huntington. I scanned this in b/w to give it a "dated look.........

Rail excursions most always have photo run-by opportunities. Here is such one from a New River Train in 1986. A clear view was tough to come by.

Stopped at the Charleston, WV  station on a 1985 NRT.
 
1985 was a special year for steam on the C&O mainline. The 614T graced these same rails during month long testing in January and of course, the #765 for two weekends in October.
