Nickel Plate Steam 1957-1958

By Robert P. Olmsted.

Softcover, 8.5x11, 48 glossy all-color pages. 2010.

"The newest book from Robert P. Olmsted features 75 color photos of Nickel Plate steam-powered freights taken during 1957 and 1958 at Calumet Yard in Chicago, Hammond, Indiana, Bellevue, Ohio, and a number of other locations in between. You'll get plenty of steam action, lots of smoke, freight cars, semaphore signals, detail photos and beautiful midwestern vistas captured on Kodachrome more than 50 years ago! The S-2 Berkshires held down fast freight assignments on the NKP's Chicago and Fort Wayne Divisions right up to the end of steam and these Lima 2-8-4s built during World War II made for one of the most exciting shows in the midwest at the time."
