This black and white photograph shows the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company's steam locomotive #3463 along a set of tracks at Emporia, 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 between 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 permantely moved to the Topeka Fairgrounds or more commonly know today as the Kansas Expocentre. This steam locomotive is the only one in existence today.
