Pere Marquette 1223, Grand Haven

Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
The Pere Marquette 1223 is a steam locomotive on permanent display in Grand Haven, Michigan. She is one of two surviving Pere Marquette 2-8-4 "Berkshire" type locomotives. No parts from 1223 were used to restore sister engine No. 1225 to operating condition, due to the objections of the Michigan Railroad Club, then unofficial custodians of the engine. The MSU Railroad Club did hold some successful fundraising events at the 1223 during the State Fair. That money was used in the restoration of the 1225.
