Re: Nickel Plate Road's last steamer

Not a builder's photo: too shiny, no construction number plate near the rail, and, most importantly, a power pole in the middle of the tender. It was really dolled-up. For what, and where? Craig In the front of the locomotive the building in the background is a NKP building.. I was guessing Clevele...

Kinda sorta. CSX invested millions to upgrade the line so they could use it as a relief valve for routes into Cincinnati. L&I owns the line, but CSX owns the improvements (ballast, ties, CWR, new bridges) and has exclusive trackage rights.
CSX Crews ? CSX Power or L&I Power ?
