My turn!

1. DT&I Berkshire #705. Put it on tourist excursions running between Jackson, OH and Toledo, OH.

2. DT&I Berkshire #700. I say Ecorse, MI or Flat Rock, MI.

3. B&O Mountain #704. B&O Roundhouse Museum, Baltimore, MA.

4. B&O Yellowstone. B&O Roundhouse Museum, Baltimore, MA.

5. Pere Marquette Berkshire #1227. I looked up the source saying it was about to be donated right near the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids, MI. Too bad the RR executives changed their minds. 

6. Atlanta & West Point Mikado #430. It looked much too good to be a Berkshire! I say Southeastern Railway Museum, Duluth, Georgia.

7. Louisville & Nashville Berkshire #1966. I've seen pictures of its surviving tender at the SE Railway Museum. Ask the L&N executives to leave the locomotive intact back then (or maybe build a new one from scratch (hard to imagine what it'll be like, though)), and you have yourself a masterpiece.  

8. Wabash Northern #2906. Two Wabash surviving steam engines aren't enough! Give it some 73-inch drivers, and put it on display at the old PM yard by also making a train museum out of the space as well.

9. Pere Marquette 2-8-0. Alden Depot, Alden, MI.

10. Grand Trunk Western 2-8-0. Waterford Historical Society, Waterford, MI.

I've written up something like this on DeviantART as well. (
