NKP History
The New York, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad (NYC&St.L) , commonly referred to as "the Nickel Plate Road", was a railroad that operated in the mid-central United States. The Nickel Plate Railroad was constructed in 1881 along the South Shore of the Great Lakes connecting Buffalo, New York and Chicago to compete with the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway. In 1964, the Nickel Plate Road and several other mid-western carriers were merged into the larger Norfolk and Western Railway (N&W). No mainline railroad was more colorful than the Nickel Plate Road in the early 1950's, and this publicity film shows Lima S2 2-8-4s "Berkshire" and brand new Alco PAs moving freight and passenger trains in high style.
