On November 15th & 16th, a work session was held at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania on Nickel Plate Road steam locomotive #757 to prepare the locomotive for movement to the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum in Bellevue, Ohio.

Zach Hall and Rick Rowlands discuss the work being performed and various photographs are included of the work session. The Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum is embarking on a monumental campaign to bring Nickel Plate Road steam locomotive #757 to our museum site in Bellevue, Ohio.

The Sandusky Register reports:

Bellevue’s railroad museum and Locomotive No. 757 were made for each other.

“This locomotive has always been the one that got away,” Fuehring said. “This should have been our first piece.”

Hauling it back is not a trivial task and will consume $100,000 to $150,000. “It will have to come here on a special move,” Fuehring said.

He said restoring the locomotive to good condition will cost about $50,000, and another $50,000 will be needed to give it a covered display site.
