Ole buzzard Another of my favorite locomotives, Pere Marquette 1225, owned and operated by the Steam Railroading Institute. It also has a 2-8-4 wheel arrangement, like locomotive 765 in the picture below. Both were built by Lima Locomotive Works in Lima OH, 1225 in 1941, and 765 in 1944. Both were built to the same blueprints, with some minor cosmetic difference in placement of appliances such as air compressors.
