Golden Spike Centennial Limited Berkshire

In late April and into early May of 1969 the High Iron Company along with the famous Ross Rowland Jr. took guests on a two week tour of America's railroads as part of the 100th anniversary of the laying of the Golden Spike. Motive power for the train varied from the brand new EMD DDA40X Centennials to the venerable P-2b electric box cabs. However none were as ironic than ex-Nickel Plate Road S-2 Berkshire No. 759. Painted in a beautiful blue and gold livery, this was the main motive power for much of the route east of the Mississippi River.

Today Nickel Plate Road No. 759 is on display at the Steamtown Railroad Museum. Ross Rowland Jr. would later go on to restore No. 759's sister Nickel Plate Road No. 765 and would later retire from steam preservation in 2019. 2019 would also see more Golden Spike celebrations across the U.S. just as we had seen 50 years earlier.
