Remarks & Notes 
Santa Fe 2912 was built by Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1944. Material shortages during the war limited the use of certain steel alloys, making the 2900 series of locomotives the heaviest of the 4-8-4 engines. Designed for passenger service between Colorado and California, the locomotives were among the fastest ever built, with driver wheels just over 6 feet tall. This Northern class ‘Driver 8’ will forever be taking a break, likely to never see her boiler fired again. Missing parts such as the connecting rods would certainly be hard to make and probably nearly impossible to find.
