I've been a long time admirer of the Nickel Plate Road, the 765 and of course the incredible organization that has maintained and operated the locomotive. It has been a few years since I've seen the 765, or really ventured out rail fanning, as I have been focusing on school and career development.
I have seen some photos that indicate that the 765 once traveled the former Erie Lackawanna mainline from Youngstown to either Jamestown, Salamanca, or Hornell in New York state. I believe that this deadhead occurred after a series of trips on the P&LE in 1985 or so. If it was in 1985, it was shortly after the devastating tornado outbreak that occurred on May 31st, 1985. Perhaps that is why this deadhead is not that well documented.
I was wondering what information that anyone may be able to share regarding the 765's movement over this piece of trackage. It was only a year ago that I learned about this movement and I was quite surprised that I had never heard anything about it before.
