On a cold foggy morning NKP 765, decorated as C&O 2765, crosses
the Coal River into St. Albans in 1989.
2765 picks up passengers after arriving in St. Albans, WV.
Once again 2765 (765) lets the cinders fly in the straight stretch at
London Locks. What a sight.
Approaching Cotton Hill along the New River 2765 is slipping on wet
2765 is pulling hard and slipping past Cotton Hill. Not even during the
peak of the passenger era did a Berkshire pull so many cars.
On another day, with dry track, 2765 lets loose a beautiful plume of
steam and smoke.
2765 enters the abandoned coal town of Thurmond, now part of the
National Park. The engine house is now gone and soon the water tower
and other structures owned by CSX will be too.
2765 passes by the water tower in Thurmond, soon to be destroyed.
2765 is slowing to stop just past the station at Thurmond, soon to be
restored and repainted yellow. Now only the station, the buildings, and
the coaling tower remain.
After the run by at Thurmond 2765 departs on its way to Stretchers Neck
