NKP 718 passes through Bluffton

Paul Diller took this color slide photo of Nickel Plate Road 718 steam locomotive hauling fast freight through Bluffton in the mid-1950s.

The smoke stack in the background is the former Woodcock power plant located where the NKP crossed the AC&Y. The freight is headed eastbound toward Findlay.

718 was an S-1 Class 2-8-4 Berkshire built by the Lima Locomotive Works in June, 1942.
