Product Information 

First introduced in 1927, the 2-8-4 Berkshire was designed and built by both Alco and Lima. The newly designed 4-wheel trailing truck allowed for a larger boiler that developed much more steam. Even though only 750 Berks were made, they were popular for longer than most other steamers built in the same era. The last Berkshire was built in 1949 by Lima.
