Review of Nickel Plate Road 765 Erie Lackawanna Adventure DVD

 5 of 5 (2)
Mainline steam returned to the Empire State in 2015, thanks to a partnership between Norfolk Southern and the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society. As part of a lengthy eastern tour, Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 #765 visited western New York for the first time since the late 1980's. During the first weekend of August, she operated a series of excursions over the former Erie Railroad between Buffalo and Corning, NY. Then in September, #765 was in Scranton, PA for the first time, operating over the former Lackawanna mainline through the Pocono Mountains.

The first half of this program covers the "Erie Limited" excursions in western New York. Operating over the NS Southern Tier Line, #765 pulled a couple of 260-mile roundtrips between Buffalo and Corning on August 1st and 2nd. #765 put on a grand show, easily pulling a 20-car train on this scenic line. In addition to the 2 public excursions, you'll see the August 3rd ferry move from Buffalo to Binghamton as #765 traveled to eastern Pe
