ATSF No. 3759

ATSF #3759 is hauling the "Farewell to Steam" excursion.

Santa Fe (ATSF) No. 3759 is a type of 4-8-4 'Northern', steam locomotive which was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1928 for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway.

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.

TriviaEdit

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.
