Remarks & Notes 
The fireman of locomotive 1225 checks the firebox during an evening photo charter. Pere Marquette #1225 was built in 1941 by the Lima Locomotive Works in Lima, Ohio. This locomotive was the very same engine that the Polar Express book and movie location was based on. Today the locomotive is owned and operated by the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, Michigan. In January 2019 Pete Lerro ran a photo charter with 1225 and a matching passenger consist. One of the most iconic locations on the Steam Railroading Institute's operable track is the Carland Elevator. During the event, multiple run-bys were staged at this location.

A far cry from the common wedgie ... and particularly well executed.
