NKP GP30 901 on the I&O (9/10/17)
Author: NTBolton

Drove down to Lima, Ohio today to catch Cincinnati Railway's GP30 #901 in NKP paint leading the 3:30 excursion train south down the I&O. The train consisted of 8 cars, CNRY GP30 #901, and Lebanon Mason Monroe GP7 #55.

Photo #1: Crossing Kibby Street shortly after departing Lincoln Park in Lima.

Photo #2: The engineer waves as the train passes.

Photo #3: Crossing Huffman Creek at Uniopolis.

Video below, thanks for viewing.

It was a nice day for it! You didn't overdo it by any means, haha. It's always refreshing to see a friendly crew. Adds a lot of personality to the pictures.

Thanks for the kind words all.

Good thing the GP 30 was along. The loco on the North end was along for the ride second and third trip (some sort of problem).
A tip of the hat to the hogger of the GP 30 who had to face south on the northbound trip (s);in either direction he gave meaning to turbo charged power.
