Locomotive No. 759

In May, 1968, No. 759, an S-2 class 2-8-4, was married to the rails for a special excursion—celebration of the 100th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad. Built by the Lima Locomotive Works (August, 1944) for the New York, Chicago & St. Louis Railroad, No. 759 was among the last of a large fleet of fast freight Berkshire locomotives to compete successfully with diesels.
