Review of Steam Returns to the Pittsburgh Line 765 DVD

 4.3 of 5 (3)
For the first time in over 30 years, steam has returned to the Pittsburgh Line! As a part of NS' 21 st Century Steam Program, the Nickel Plate 2-8-4 Berkshire #765 was called to lead an employee excursion train to celebrate the company's 30th Anniversary. The NKP #765 traveled to Harrisburg, PA to operate the employee excursions on August 18th-19th 2012. We followed the NKP #765 over its journey across central Pennsylvania on the famed mainline connecting Harrisburg and Pittsburgh. We begin east of Pittsburgh, at South Fork, and follow the eastbound ferry move of the excursion train to Enola Yard near Harrisburg on August 13, 2012. Next, we cover the five employee excursions originating out of Enola Yard the weekend of August 18th-19th. Finally, we cover the entire westward journey from Enola Yard near Harrisburg back to Conway Yard on August 20th.

The NKP #765 was the star of the show leading the excursion train, however the NS Heritage Unit #8100 Nickel Plate was also a part
