Re: NKP 765

I realize this is not a freight car
but am wondering if the Nickle Plate Road assigned there
steam like my favorite, B&O.
Plan on having steam era freights of roads which crossed
the Newark Division! NKP, Erie, AC&Y, NYC and PRR.

Hi Mark,

Short answer, yes.

Longer answer: which engines got assigned to which division depends on lots of different variables, including the year and division you're talking about, the traffic density, when bridges were rebuilt, how the march of dieselization affected the steam fleet, etc.

For more information, you might want to bring this question over to one of the NKP lists, so we don't bore everyone here!
