The New York, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad, popularly known as the Nickel Plate Road, is famous for its powerful and beautiful Berkshire locomotives.

In 1934, the Nickel Plate Railroad took delivery of fifteen "Berkshire" 2-8-4 locomotives from the American Locomotive Company. The railroad was evidently pleased with the performance of these locomotives and ended up ordering a total of 80 of them, fifteen from ALCo and the remainder from Lima Locomotive Works.

The locomotives were numbered 700 through 779. The locomotives had 69" diameter drivers, and 25"x34" cylinders. They operated at a boiler pressure of 245 psi, and they exerted 64,135 lbs of tractive effort. The S-2 version, modelled by G-TraX, weighed 440,800 lbs with 264,300 lbs on the drivers.
