Originally numbered #891, this oil-burning locomotive was used mostly to pull freight trains in Texas, Oklahoma, and surrounding states.  Although many engines of this class were operating on Santa Fe lines in California, this particular locomotive’s record tells of service on Santa Fe’s Northern, Southern, Panhandle, Plains, and Gulf Divisions.  The locomotive’s appearance changed very little during its 55-year service career, and it was still in active service right up to the time of its donation to Travel Town in 1953.
