    LIONEL 38052 PERE MARQUETTE 2-8-4 BERKSHIRE LOCOMOTIVE #1225

    The Nickel Plate Road, Erie, and Pere Marquette railroads were all controlled by real estate magnates, Otis P. and Mantis J. Van Sweringen. The fast, powerful 2-8-4 Berkshire Locomotive was their choice for a freight workhorse. First created in 1925 by William E. Woodard, chief designer for the Lima Locomotive Works, the 2-8-4 Berkshire typified the new locomotive design concept dubbed "Superpower."
    The "Superpower" concept focused on increasing the steaming capacity of a locomotive of a given size. The four wheel trailing truck pioneered on the 2-8-4 Berkshires was a revolutionary improvement to that end. This new type of trailing truck could support a larger firebox thereby generating more steam and more power. This scale-sized Lionel Berkshire captures the look of this late steam era classic with distinctive separately applied details and performance worthy of the prototype. Two FatBoy speakers with RailSounds sound system and smoke output provide a state-of-the-art experience.
    The Pere Marquette #1225 was restored to running condition by the Michigan State Trust for Railway Preservation, Inc. in Owosso, MI and still makes periodic runs under her own power.
