Description

Pere Marquette 1225 built for Pere Marquette Railway (PM) by Lima Locomotive Works in Lima, OH. 1225 is one of two surviving Pere Marquette 2-8-4 locomotives. Nickel Plate 765, operated by the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society is also a Lima built Berkshire very similar in appearance and specifications.

The Pere Marquette Railroad used 1225 in regular service from 1941 until the railroad merged into Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C&O) in 1947. It stayed in use on C&O's Michigan lines until 1951. It was acquired by Michigan State University in 1957 and placed on static display.

The locomotive is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is now used on excursion trains over the former Tuscola and Saginaw Bay Railway, now Great Lakes Central Railroad.

The train was on display outside Michigan State University football stadium. The static displayed train became the inspiration for writer of the children’s book and movie Polar Express. The number 1225 is the numerical number for Christmas Day.



DCC- and sound-equipped locomotive includes SoundTraxx steam package, plus a precision motor, die-cast chassis, prototypical tender and detailing, and more.
