In 2004, #1225 became known worldwide as the Berkshire
locomotive featured in the instant-classic Christmas film,
The Polar Express. More than inspiration, blueprints of the
ex-Pere Marquette steam engine and tender were used as
prototypes for the animated locomotive’s design elements,
and actual sounds of the #1225 were utilized in the film.
Additionally, to the delight of the public, the actual #1225
operated on excursions in 2004 with the Pere Marquette
tender repainted “Polar Express”.


Lionel proudly offers a reissue of the scale-sized and accurately
detailed Pere Marquette Berkshire #1225 equipped
with the best features including the LEGACY Control System
and Odyssey II Speed Control. The Pere Marquette locomotive
is perfect for pulling the new scale Polar Express
passenger cars. Add the tender of your choice  to this locomotive to complete your package.
