NKP 765 rest in the very first light on August 22, 2012 at Bellevue, Ohio. This days deadhead move was the only run without a diesel trailing.

Bellevue was home for most of Nickle Plate Roads Berks so she is right at home where she was 50 years before.

Not really a race. The Union Pacific freight slows to stop as a BNSF intermodal charges up Cajon pass. Activity on this piece of railroad almost always seems heavy.

Union Pacific 4-6-6-4 Challenger storms across a crossing as steam escapes from the cyliders. This is one sweet piece of machinery.

Check out those side rods! Nice and shiny and polished...oh...and orginial! Its nice to know something nearly 70 years old can look that good. I even got to touch them and I didnt have any dirt on my finger at all.

This was taken a few minutes prior.

ATSF 3751 heads west on the BNSF transcon at Siberia, CA where the westbound and eastbound mains split for a few miles. ATSF3751 did not smoke very much on the run to the Grand Canyon but here she smoking a bit.

Yes, I believe that is what the Union Pacific "Challenger" would tell you. The Challenger being the worlds largest operating steam locomotive, a 4-6-6-4 built by ALCO in 1943.

Poor 844 doesnt stand a chance against this behemoth.

A passenger excursion with Juniata Terminals E8As take a walk thru West Park on Pittsburgh's north side during a light rain. Here it begins to traverse the Conemaugh line, a freight only water level route around Pittsburgh that follows the Conemaugh river. Notice towards the rear of the train, the glow of the rails, that is this train. Matching Power by DragonWolfACe The bridge I was on can be seen in the background.

Getting this shot is rather interesting as the bridge Im standing on is barricaded off.

EDIT: The bridge has since been torn down.
