High Iron Co.'s "New York State Express"  Contributor's Pick!       
Nickel Plate Road Lima S2 Berkshire #759 heads up the Erie Lackwanna Bergen County Line, on a Memorial Day Weekend "New York State Express" to Binghamton, NY (run by Ross Rowland Jr's High Iron Company). 2-8-4 #759 was one of 80 NKP Berkshires. It, was delivered 08/44. At the helm of 759 was Al Collins. The EL Office Car behind the HICO crew car was #2 which ran platform first in both directions carrying EL Hoboken GM Bob Downing. He nearly always took his EL business car to Binghamton with 759 when it made the "circle trip"--up the Erie and back the Lackawanna. The young photographer on the bottom left is RR Pic Archives contributor Charles Freericks, taking his first ever train picture.
