AboutEdit

The #3751 was not only the first Santa Fe 4-8-4, but was also the Baldwin Locomotive Works' first 4-8-4. Built in 1927, it was the prototype for future 4-8-4s. The Santa Fe was very impressed by it's performance that it soon ordered more "notherns" (4-8-4s). It was rebuilt in 1936 so it could burn oil. After a 26 year career, the engine was retired in 1953 and donated to San Bernardino, California.

In 1985, the 3751 was purchased for restoration. After six years, the engine moved under it's own steam in 1991. It has since been operational.
