A few years ago, the locomotive was moved from the front of the museum to a siding adjacent to the pavilion.

Originally numbered 891, this oil-burning locomotive was used exclusively for freight in Texas, Oklahoma and surrounding states, although many of this class were operating on freight lines in California. This particular locomotive's record tells of service on Santa Fe's Northern, Southern, Panhandle, Plains and Gulf Divisions. The engine's appearance changed very little during its fifty five year career. The locomotive was in active service when the Santa Fe Railroad donated it to Travel Town. Some enginesĀ from this class were rebuilt in to 0-8-0 switchers in the early 1930's
