Product Information

After pulling a weekend of trips in western New York, the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society brought Nickel Plate Road #765 to Allentown, PA for 2 days of excursions in late August. Operating over a combination of Norfolk Southern and Reading & Northern trackage, #765 pulled 2 roundtrips between Allentown and Pittston, PA on the former Lehigh Valley mainline. #765 hadn't been this far east since the 1988 NRHS convention, and it was the first time she operated over this portion of the Lehigh Valley.

This program covers the August 22nd and 23rd "Lehigh Gorge Special" excursions. These trips operated over the western end of Norfolk Southern's Lehigh Line, then through the Lehigh Gorge and over Penobscot Mountain on the Reading & Northern Railroad. After turning the train in Pittston, #765 climbed the steeper eastbound grade to Solomon's Gap, before stopping for a layover in Jim Thorpe in the late afternoon. Reading & Northern 4-6-2 #425 was in town to greet #765, and you'll see the two locomotives exchanging whistle salutes on August 22nd.

You'll also see footage of #425 pulling the "Greater Pittston Charity Ride"' on September 13th. This trip operated from Pittston to Jim Thorpe, 3 weeks after #765 ran over the same route. Loud as ever, #425 put on a spectacular show and you'll see footage from inside the cab in addition to the usual trackside runbys.

Filmed entirely in HD, this program showcases Lima Superpower amidst the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania. Featuring two of the best sounding engines in service today, this program is full of great stack talk and sweet-sounding whistles. This program has minimal narration (with the option to turn it on or off) and no distracting music.

In addition to the standard widescreen DVD, this program is also available on HD Blu-ray disc.
