Berkshire 2-8-4 (SANTA FE)

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.
