EAST LANSING, Mich. - Have you ever been fascinated with trains and dreamed of running a locomotive, pulling the throttle, and stoking the fire?

At Michigan State University this dream is becoming a reality.

With the blessings of MSU President Clifton R. Wharton Jr., students in the MSU Railroad Club are tackling the massive job of rebuilding a 240-ton Pere Marquette steam locomotive.



One of two in existence, the '1225' is the only one which is nearly operational. Avid enthusiasts, the Railroad Club members have spent the last nine months checking state and federal operation and boiler regulations, rail rights and mapping plans for converting the engine so it can be used for passenger service.

When the '1225' is rebuilt, MSU students hope to use it to transport students, as well as team members, to selected football games and running periodic excursions for fans to MSU athletic events.
