This engine hauled passenger trains on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway. It was retired in the late 50’s.
Today it's on display at Locomotive Park, located between Andy Devine Avenue and Beale Street in Kingman, Arizona.
A sister engine, #3751, still occasionally operates out of Los Angeles, California. 8 others, #3759 and #2926, also survive.
In February 1955, 3759 was brought out of retirement at the request of the Railway Club of Southern California for a special excursion run, dubbed "Farewell to Steam."
In January 1991, Grand Canyon Railway owner Max Biegert sent a letter to Kingman city officials of his proposal to lease AT&SF 3759 to operation and donate his engine No. 19 to the city.
3759 would have run in the Grand Canyon Railway and an "Orient Express"-styled train between Los Angeles and Williams, Arizona.
