Christmas Story

The animated film “The Polar Express” used this Locomotive as a template for the one seen in the film. In real life it is the Pere Marquette 1225. It is a Berkshire 284 loco. Believe me, even as slow as she’s going here, when she passes by you can feel it right through your feet. When that whistle blows, if you’re within a couple of miles you’re going to hear it. This was shot in Owosso Mi. Dec. 7, 2008.

    This old clunker is garbage any longer! It belongs in a scrap yard being cut apart or either a blast or induction furnace for melting the materials to make new products!
