Created by the Lima Locomotive Company, Berkshires were among the last great steam locomotive designs and were dubbed the original “Superpowers”.The Nickel Plate Road is well-known for their famous, restored 2-8-4 steamer that is still in operation today - involved in current excursion events and public display. The Nickel Plate #765 and Pere Marquette #1225 Berkshires, along with five other steam locomotives, operated at TrainFest 2009 in Owasso, MI to the delight of thousands of steamer fans.
