Have you ever wanted to be a steam locomotive engineer?

You'll feel like you're the engineer of the 765 after you watch this video! Former Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 "Berkshire" No. 765 is the star of this show, as she pulls a 32 car passenger train through the fabulous New River Gorge. The hillsides are ablaze in glorious fall colors as the 765 pulls this big train from Huntington to Hinton, West Virginia.

YOU WILL RIDE IN THE CAB OF THE 765 WITH ENGINEER and OGR PUBLISHER Rich Melvin for almost 40 miles through the New River Gorge, and he will tell you what's going on every mile of the way! You'll feel like you're covered in coal smoke and cinders after you watch this one, it's so real!

If you have ever wanted to see what REALLY goes on in the cab of a big steam locomotive, this video is for you!

I absolutely love this DVD. Short of getting an actual cab ride in 765 over the mainline (kudos to those that volunteer with the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society these days and put in the hard work and long hours to be able to do this in real life), this is a fantastic way to get to spend time in the cab of the locomotive. The sights and sounds make it feel as though you're actually there with the crew as they battle through the New River Gorge. I enjoy putting this DVD in and just listening and taking it all in as I do. Who knows, maybe one day I'll get that cab ride...

Made on tape only in 1990, this program documents the route of the original steam powered trips until Norfolk Southern & CSX say goodbye forever to the Steam Specials at the end of 1994. It's no Wonder why 765 has been one of the most popular engines on the Huntington to Hinton Diesel Only line.
