Real NKP Berkshire #757 is on the Move from Strasburg PA!!!

Tom:  Will you and any of your cameras be chasing the train? 

Tony, Ill probably be passing. With 25MPH restriction all the way to Bellevue on any route for this train and its soon into Conway PA, plus Recrew, diesel fuel for the 2 NS, its looking complete dark along Youngstown Line, meaning my guess of after 3 to 4PM in Youngstown and maybe, (being optimistic of 8 to 10PM Ashtabula).

Tom:  pardon my ignorance, but won't that route take the 757 over the Trestle near Riverside High School above 84?

If so, some good morning sun would make for some cool pix.........

Tony, yes it will if it takes the Youngstown Line to get on the NS Lake Erie District.

As of around 3:10PM, 757 finally departed Conway. So now its a long treck up the Youngstown Line at 25MPH.

Managed to catch the 757 at Williamsfield on US 322. Waited for roughly an hour. It was dark, cold, wet, and worth it. I mostly waited in my truck with a pepsi blanket until I heard the horn.

Nearly four years ago I witnessed the 765 pass through the same location three times when it was part of the NS steam program.

My video of the 757 leaves much to be desired. So I'll post a 765 photo at the same location.

Fantastic shot!!! I was at that spot back in 2015 as well for that same trip at 322.

As to 757 update, it's in Carson Yard as of 8:15PM.

Any idea as to what all of that "yellow stuff" on the front and sides of 757 is?  I assume it's not surface rust.....?

Also, would the NS locomotive had to have used the Wye near there so that it could basically pull into Bellevue in reverse, drop off 757, and then head back out....without the 757 blocking its path?
