The Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 Berkshire No. 765. This is the historic steam locomotive No. 765: a high-stepping, fourteen wheeled magnificent machine that stands 15 feet tall, weighs 404 tons, and goes over 60 miles an hour, restored to the way it looked and sounded when it was built by the Lima Locomotive Works in 1944. This engine is the largest operating steam locomotive east of the Mississippi, and is the pride of the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society.
