NKP 765 heads through Lehigh Gap!

(Train sightings on 8-22-15 and 10-13-85.)

NKP 765 is heading north at MP 107 on Saturday morning as seen from the bridge abutment of what was once the L&NE bridge that spanned the river at this location. Thirty years earlier I was on that same bridge abutment photographing another excursion, The Jim Thorpe Express, on October 13, 1985. Motive power for that excursion Morristown & Erie ALCOs 16 and 17 (?) and NJT 4167 on what was a foggy morning along the Lehigh River.
