Akron Railroad Club Treasurer Edward Ribinskas was out trackside on both weekends that the Nickel Plate Road No. 765 was pulling steam excursions on the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad. He sends along some of his favorite images of the 765 in action. He noted that the top image is  photo location that he’s known about for years, but ARRC member Robert Surdyk did not. So Ed showed him this location.
