These two black and white photographs show the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company's steam locomotive #1 at the Larned Branch near Dodge City, Kansas. This locomotive, commonly known as the Cyrus K. Holliday, was built in 1880 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a 2-8-0 wheel arrangement and a road number of #132. The success of this locomotive to climb the steep grades of the Raton Pass at the Colorado-New Mexico border, prompted ATSF to order ten more for service. These were numbered from 130 to 139. In 1977, Santa Fe Railway officials donated the locomotive to the Kansas Historical Society for placement in the museum's main gallery.

Date: September 1958
