This black and white photograph shows the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company's steam locomotive #3463 at the depot in Burlingame, Kansas. The locomotive was designed by H.H. Lanning and his staff in Topeka, Kansas and built in 1937 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The steam locomotive was first assigned between La Junta, Colorado and Chicago, Illinois. Later with the introduction of the diesel engine, service was changed to Kansas City and Oklahoma City and Kansas City and Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1953 the #3463 made one last run between Newton, Kansas and Emporia, Kansas. For three years, the class 4-6-4 locomotive remained in Emporia until 1956 when it was permanently moved to the Topeka Fairgrounds or more commonly known today as the Kansas Expocentre. This steam locomotive is the only one in existence today.

Date: September 1941
