Photo taken at North Judson, Indiana in May
If at about 5:15 pm yesterday, you imagined you heard a steam whistle traveling through downtown, no, you weren’t imaging things.
The NKP 765 was returning home after several successful passenger excursions in North Judson, Indiana. Â Unfortunately, I didn’t know she was returning or I’d have been on the roof. Â She travelled down the old Nickel Plate Railroad line which in downtown, this is the line on the north side of the City-County building. Â I’d just opened the door to my apartment, after a hard day’s work, when I heard that unmistakable whistle. Â I got to the window just in time to see her on the elevation. Â I heard the whistle a couple of more times. Â Needless to say, I didn’t even have time to whip out the camera. Â In fact, a friend called me to ask if he’d just heard what he thought he’d heard.
Welcome home, 765!
