We begin this show with Nickel Plate 2-8-2 number 587 as it makes its break-in run from Indianapolis in September of 1988. We see it downtown, and then on the Indiana Rail Road for a trial run. Then later in September we witness the first excursions for this engine with two roundtrips from Indianapolis to Logansport, Indiana. These trips were with the Indiana Transportation Museums lovely trainset that included 9 stainless steel former Santa Fe coaches.

DVD was very good. Content was great, and there was just enough narration. If you like the NKP 587 & 765, this is a great buy.

While the 1988 footage of 587 and 1987 action of 765 were reused and re edited from the 1989 tape: American Steam volume one, there are 5 or 6 scenes of 765 in 1985 from one of the lost pilot tapes: New River Express. Especially some vintage film clips from Maynard Lang and Perry Becker or Warren W. Scholl or Bill Warwick. One error in this... V-I-D-O-G-R-A-P-H-Y without the Letter E. Same thing for the Re-edited 765 in 1986 video.
