WKSU | Phillip Grant, July 5, 2019

A popular historic train is coming back to the Cuyahoga Valley. For the sixth year in a row, Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad will offer excursions on the Nickel Plate steam locomotive. CVSR vice president of development, Bobby Dinkins, said the 1940s-themed train fits with the mission of historic preservation.

“When you think about railroads way back when in the United States, they were really the backbone of the United States,” Dinkins said. “They won wars, they built cities and carried citizens from coast to coast. They really touched every aspect of American life. So, we’re proud as preservation groups here, in this area, as part of our mission of historic preservation to bring 765 Locomotive back to the valley.”
