An all-issue special feature:

Nickel Plate in the "Erie Triangle"



With reefers in tow, westbound Nickel Plate Berkshire 770 appears to be winning a race with a New York Central freight in this sunny day scene near Erie, Pa., in the 1950's. Yes, in the big picture of late 20th Century railroading, those NYC F-units and tier ilk will win thier own "race" as dieselization finishes its sweep through North America, but for now thse two scenes on both covers of this issue will recall an era of stream-powered high-speed freight.
