Complete Nickel Plate Berkshires DVD
The famous 700 class Nickel Plate Berkshire locomotives from the 1940s and 50sâ€”as well as the men who operated themâ€”are featured in this DVD.
See the Berks dragging coal and way freight, many doubleheaded and screaming down the main line carrying perishables. Some 500 class Mikados make an apperance as doubleheaded partners.
In addition to the working steam footage, the engineers, firemen, conductors and dispatchers who handled the 700s tell their stories. Descriptions of tight situations and wrecks are included, as well as the ways they outran, outfoxed and buried competition from the B&O, Pennsy and New York Central to make the Nickel Plate the celebrated wonder of Wall Street.
