Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company's steam Locomotive #3463
Date: August 02, 1956
This black and white photograph shows the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company's steam locomotive #3463 in Topeka, Kansas. The locomotive was designed by H.H. Lanning and his staff in Topeka 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 between 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. This steam locomotive is the only one in existence today.

In 1963, he had a .251 batting average for the 89ers, had two home runs and drove in 23 runs in 67 games.
