Steamtown National Historic Site and the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society will partner with Norfolk Southern’s 21st Century Steam NKP 765_300program to operate two special summer steam excursions!
Nickel Plate Road (NKP) #765, a 2-8-4 Berkshire-type steam locomotive, owned by the Fort Wayne group, will operate on Saturday, September 5, to Delaware Water Gap, and on Monday, September 7, to East Stroudsburg. NKP #765 is a “sister” locomotive to Steamtown’s NKP #759 locomotive, on static display inside the park’s Roundhouse. Tickets will be sold online only, and sales are expected to open soon at http://fortwaynerailroad.org/
