Berkshire Locomotive No. 755
|Photos and Feature Article
by Monnie Ryan
Nickel Plate Road Berkshire Locomotive No. 755 was built in 1944 and retired in December 1957. The huge black engine, built by the Lima Locomotive Works, is on display at the Conneaut Railroad Historical Museum in Conneaut, Ohio. It was donated to the City of Conneaut in 1964 by the New York, Chicago, and St. Louis Railway Company, also known as the Nickel Plate Road, commemorating the men who contributed much to the era of steam railroading in the Conneaut community. In the heyday of railroading, three major railroads served Conneaut, taking passengers, iron ore and coal in and out of the Lake Erie harbor town.
