Car 831 - Letters to the Editor


Trekking across northern Ohio on July 14, 1957, Nickel Plate Berkshire No. 740 cuts between Vermilion's frame depot and one of the NKP's many wood boxcars that found new life as a work car. The photographer's Chevy is at the left; he often tried to include his car into the scene he took.


Cut from its train at Continental, Ohio, on Feb. 2, 1958, NKP No. 757 takes on water.
