New Jersey Central Steam Excursions!

Yes folks, years back there were such things.

I found a video on the YouTube done by a nice young man who remembers.  A combination slide show and video, it's very enjoyable!

Nicely done!  The 774 and 810 really represented the yin and yang of CNJ power didn't they?  Big Smile

Big Smile  Same me, different spelling!  Big Smile

Yes, 810 especially, and it's a shame none of those 800-Series Pacifics were saved, it might have made a hell of an excursion locomotive if given the chance.

What are you gonna do?  Very few thought that way back then.
