Identifier:
2018.5.3
Description:
A black and white photograph of a marketing portrait of the 1222 Pere Marquette locomotive made by Lima Locomotive Works in 1941.

Copy from the original advertisement reads: "One of twelve new high-speed, 2-8-4 type freight locomotives recently delivered to the Pere Marquette Railway company by the Lima Locomotive Works, Incorporated. The excellent performance of the fifteen 2-8-4 type locomotives that were delivered to the Pere Marquette by Lima during the latter part of 1937 convinced the railroad that similar locomotives of this type would be the most economical and efficient means of augmenting their existing power to meet today's traffic demands."
