No HEP on the 630 trips. Each car has it's own generator which is used for each run.

Re: Train Festival - Anyone from here go there?

I'm on the crew of the 765 and was there from Weds to Monday. The engine did very well and had a good test with a decent size train on the Friday all day trip. I met a bunch of the 261 guys and they are a great group! Very nice equipment as well. We joked around that the 765 crew consumed more water...

I've had this the past week as well. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Re: NKP 765 To Attend TrainFestival 2009

There are some other discussions on what equipment will be there. I've heard a possible tank engine or two and the chance of another larger steam locomotive. I plan to be in attendance with the 765 helping them out!

Re: audio CD help

I agree that the NKP 765 CD is tremendous. You can buy it from the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society.
