FRONT COVER

A freshly dressed brakeman guides the power fora second-trick crew through the crossover between the Siding and Long tracks just west of the East 75th Street engine shed at Cleveland. Mike 522 was renumbered 964 in 1955 to make room for EMD GP9s. The 964 would make its last run in May of 1958.

BACK COVER:

NKP company photographer Willis McCaleb climbed to the top of the vertical lift bridge across the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, OH in 1959, to catch this unique view of a westbound Nickel Plate train coming off the span.
