NKP 2-8-4 no. 765 - Willvale, Indiana
On September 6, 1952, Nickel Plate 2-8-4 #765 storms through Willvale, Indiana with the first section of train #56. This was a train of mostly refrigerator cars and judging from the smoke trail, it is moving at the 60 mph speed limit. Don't bother trying to find Willvale on your current state highway map, but it will show on much older maps. The community is long gone; it was where state road #39 crosses the tracks between Brems and Hayville. How's that for pinning the location down, it is west of Knox. Sandy Goodrick took the photo.
