Blasting by in full stride in the flat lands of Western Ohio on one of her first excursion trips, Nickel Plate Road Berkshire No. 765 puts on a dazzling display of Lima “Super Power.”

You'll see dozens of runbys plus some smooth, side-by-side pacing scenes at 65 mph. If you have never seen an NKP Berk at speed, you have missed seeing one of the steam era's most impressive sights!

45 minutes.

NKP # 765 is one of my favorite restored mainline steam locomotive and I was happy to see it available on DVD as my old VHS version video quality leaves much to be desired by today's standards. This is probably the earliest footage available since its restoration in 1979, and considering this program was originally shot and produced in 1980, the quality is surprisingly good. The cameraman must have had the best camcorder available at the time.

There is some stationary scenes at roundhouses and during servicing as details are explained, but the bulk of this program is chasing the 765 pulling various trains, with lots of visceral stack-talk and whistle blowing. Pacing scenes are great too. It's a short-ish program ( less than 1 hr ) that is over all too soon and an enjoyable one at that.
