FRONT COVER

NKP 2-8-2 No. 958 is holding the main line for a meet at Chili (Ohio) siding north of Zanesville, Ohio, on the Wheeling & Lake Erie District's Cleveland Division in the summer of 1956. Built by Brooks in 1917, NKP H-5 No. 512 was re-numbered 958 in December 1955. Well-suited to challenge Baltic Hill, it worked "peddler service" on the Zanesville-Brewster local until being laid up in October 1956.
