Description

Between 1934 and 1949, the Nickel Plate Road acquired (80) S-2 class 2-8-4 Berkshire locomotives. They stood 16ft tall and stretched 100ft long. An enlarged firebox and a (4) wheel trailing truck allowed higher steaming pressures. They produced 4500hp and had a max speed of 70mph. The exact principle of the Lima Super Power design: Horse-Power at Speed! The acquisition of diesels and the decline in freight traffic resulted in the Berkshires being sidelined from service by 1958. In 1962, #759 was purchased by F. Nelson Blount and stored at Steamtown in Vermont until 1967 when Ross Rowland acquired the engine. Under Ross’ control, #759 ran until 1973. #765 was restored to operation in 1979 and ran until 1993 when she was put through a complete rebuild. She returned to service again in 2006 and has been pulling excursions ever since.

Today: Only (6) of the (80) Berkshires built for the NKP survive:

#755 is on display at the Conneaut RR Historical Museum in Conneaut, OH
#757 is on display at the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum in Bellevue, OH
#759 is on display at the Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, PA
#763 is under restoration at the Age of Steam Roundhouse in Sugarcreek, OH
#765 is operated by the Fort Wayne RR Historcal Society in Fort Wayne, IN
