Today was the first time I experienced steam. I had a blast at Franklin Park Railroad Days. When I first saw NKP 765, it put a big smile on my face. Now I can finally say that I saw the 765. #NickelPlateRoad765 #NKP765 #Trains #Railfanning @fortwaynerails

More photos of the NKP 765 pulling the Phoebe Snow excursion at the Steamtown National Historic Site on September 5, 2015. #nickelplateroad765 #steamtrains #railfest2015

765 has just arrived outside of LaSalle Street Station and has begun to disassemble the train to fit into the platforms. I thought the signals were kinda cool too.

Riding on a steam train! 🚂🚂
Random person on train (joking, because they encouraged people to "dress up" vintage): "Why are you dressed up?"
Me (deadpan): "I'm not dressed up."

Hope y'all don't mind the continued 765 spam...but come on, ain't she beautiful?

765 blasting her way through Blue Island. Didn't like this shot at first, but it just sorta grew on me.

Nickel Plate Road 765 pulling into Chicago. I'd like to publicly apologize for the rant I had placed here...$75 is just too expensive for my budget.

High-speed steam, classic signal bridge, and great weather. What could be better? Not much. NKP 765 leads "The Joliet Rocket" excursion eastbound on the Metra Rock Island District. Special thanks to @fortwaynerails for keeping this beast running, it was an honor to chase and ride the train this weekend! #nkp765 #nickelplateroad765 #nickelplateroad #metra #rockisland #jolietrocket #crip #Chicago #Joliet #Robbins #Illinois #train #steam #locomotive #railroad #railfan
