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.

For perhaps a split second, it seemed as if the world transformed itself 60 years earlier...to a time the ATSF existed and steam ruled.

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.

When Norfolk Southern unveiled the heritage fleet, specifically the Conrail heritage unit, I imagined this shot in my head. I didnt think I would get this shot so soon. Ive been reluctant to share this as I dont think the NS higher ups know the fuel tank still says Conrail.
