Spike Centennial Limited
Locomotive 759 was built in August 1944 at Lima,
OH. The 2-8-4 Berkshire type pulled the train from New York City (Harmon, NY,
actually. Departed May 3) to Kansas City before turning the
train over to the Union Pacific. It also pulled the train on
the return from Kansas City to Baltimore before handing it
off to Penn Central's GG-1 4902. Currently in the Steamtown collection in Scranton, PA.
