Just about every September/October I get treated to the sights and sounds of steam and smoke from a real surviving steam engine of my favorite railroad. Typically during the 765's stay in "The Valley" the season starts to shift, signaled by those bright cloudless sky blue days and the occasional cool misty rains that make you dig up that warm hoodie you haven't worn since spring.
The 765's arrival in Akron today invoked that feeling of Fall for me with those sounds and smells, and also that strong afternoon sun which accompanies the march toward autumn. Brendan and I have always tried to be there when it arrives and today was no different.

I believe there are still seats available for the next three weekends of trips starting September 19th. If you live in the area come and ride or just come to watch!
Welcome back 765!
