Car 831 - Letters to the Editor


MAIN PHOTO: A midday meet at Findlay, Ohio, early in the 1960s has a westbound in the hole as a trio of Geeps led by GP9 812 rolls by en route to Bellevue, Ohio.


Nickel Plate GP7 No. 410 idles outside the yard office at Indianapolis. The photo is undated, but the 410, delivered in 1951, looks quite new, which might put this scene to the early 1950s. Indianapolis was the location of the 2013 NKPHTS convention. More coverage of that event will appear in the next issue of the NICKEL PLATE ROAD MAGAZINE.
