Review of Smoke Around Gotham Nickel Plate 765 DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
Filmed at the 1988 NRHS convention in New Jersey, you'll see Nickel Plate Road Berkshire No. 765 running on Conrail lines out of Bound Brook, New Jersey to Easton, Pennsylvania and to the Blue Mountain & Reading Railroad at Temple, Pennsylvania.

You'll also see Morristown & Erie's gorgeous Alco Centuries, plus the Blue Mountain & Reading's 4-8-4 No. 2101 and 4-6-2 No. 425 in action.

The 765 is also featured running on NJ Transit and over the huge Moodna Viaduct on a trip to Port Jervis, NY.

52 minutes.
