Remarks & Notes 
Here is a rare look at NKP 765 on the Paducah & Louisville in the early 90s. Taken by an UNKNOWN PHOTOGRAPHER (most likely a retired P&L railroader), this image was scanned from a small print given to me by a fellow P&L employee. The shot came out of a large collection of P&L scrapbooks saved from the Louisville yard office trash nearly 10 years ago that includes everything from derailments and wrecks to men at work and retirement parties. While the image quality is mediocre at best, a remarkable scene is depicted here. Oak Street Yard is still a busy place today and NKP 765 is still making the rounds, but the nose-to-nose pair of SW13s, gray GP10, sand tower, and the old BN piggyback facility (see crane at left) are long gone.
