Review of Nickel Plate 765 Ambassador of Steam DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
Nickel Plate Road steam locomotive #765 still roams the rails, showing new generations just what a big steam locomotive is all about. In this program, you'll enjoy seeing 765 pull a variety of mainline trips in the Midwest and Northeast.
See her make a round trip on former Wabash Rails between Fort Wayne and Lafayette, Indiana.
Follow her from Fort Wayne to Cleveland and Youngstown including the assault on Carson Hill
See her clipping along between Decatur, Illinois and Fort Wayne through farm fields and small towns.
Enjoy her at the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum pulling both passenger and freight trains.
Get a ride in her cab!
Enjoy the action as she runs from Buffalo to Binghamton, New York
You'll enjoy seeing 765 out on the mainline with plenty of stack talk and some heavy grades. If you're looking for a great steam ACTION video, then this is the one for you!
