Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

See the powerful and efficient Nickel Plate Berkshires in their prime in the 1950s, with plenty of freight action pounding down the NKP main line. Catch the Nickel Plate Limited behind the famous Hudsons. (Part 1)

Follow engine # 759 on a high speed run from Elizabeth, NJ to the Pocono Mountains. Then see #759 from the air on the hidden Western Maryland line from Thurmont to Cumberland and pacing across spectacular trestles. (Parts 2 & 3)

In the finale we see NKP Berkshire #765 refurbished by the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society (FWRHS) in 1980. She hauls freight and gets a real workout on the T.P.&W. grade east of Peoria, IL. (Part 4)

Starts off with some vintage footage which is descent but not excellent quality. A lot of runbys. Next segment is excellent quality with good content. Last segment is excellent quality and content. Wished there was more vintage 1950s footage of the Berkshires to view. It is mostly more modern excursion and freight service with 759 and 765. A good buy
