Santa Fe 3759 Steam Locomotive

Santa Fe 3759是一輛標準軌 4-8-4 Northern type的蒸汽機車由Baldwin在1928年製造,目前展示於Kingman的鐵道公園,而這個鐵道公園因為這輛機車在1957年捐給Kingman來紀念Kingman的歷史而設立的。
這輛機車原始設計為燃煤及73-inch驅動輪,後來在1936年改燃油並加大驅動輪至80-inch。這輛機車主要用來拉運客車並行駛通過kingman的Santa Fe主線,而kingman設有加水設施。最後在1953退役,此時蒸汽機車已經行駛超過2,585,000英哩了。
在1955年2月此輛機車因為南加州鐵道協會的邀請而短暫復出,主題為"再見蒸汽火車",這一趟行程安排在1955年2月6日行駛於Los Angeles Union Station與Barstow, California之間。活動結束後保存在倉庫直到捐給kingman。
在1991年時大峽谷鐵道提議要修復Santa Fe 3759並用他們的19號蒸汽機車交換,並行使在洛杉磯與Williams之間,但後來委員會否決而束之高閣了。
Santa Fe 3759 is a standard gauge 4-8-4, Northern type, steam railway locomotive built by Baldwin in 1928. It is on display in Locomotive Park, located between Andy Devine Avenue and Beale Street in Kingman, Arizona. The park was established in August 1957 with AT&SF 3759 donated to the City of Kingman in recognition of Kingman's history with the railroad. The locomotive erroneously is termed a Mountain type on the nearby information plaque, and also in the City's descriptive material.
3759 was delivered in 1928 as a 3751 class "Northern" 4-8-4 passenger locomotive. Originally a coal-burning locomotive with 73-inch drivers, the fleet was converted to oil in 1936 and rebuilt between 1938 and 1941 with 80-inch drivers. Its regular service was pulling passenger trains on the Santa Fe's main line through Kingman, which was a water stop. Retired in 1953, the engine had traveled over 2,585,000 miles.
In February 1955, 3759 was brought out of retirement at the request of the Railway Club of Southern California for a special excursion run, dubbed "Farewell to Steam." This special ran on February 6, a round trip between Los Angeles Union Station and Barstow, California with stops in Pasadena and San Bernardino and was the last Santa Fe revenue steam train to leave Los Angeles and to traverse Cajon Pass. After this trip, 3759 went back into storage, until Santa Fe donated the locomotive to the city of Kingman in 1957.
The locomotive was added to the National Register of Historic Places as AT & SF Locomotive in 1986, reference number 86001113. In 1987 caboose 999520 was retired and donated to Kingman to be added behind 3759. The residents of Kingman pulled the locomotive forward 30 ft (9.1 m) to make room for the caboose. In January 1991, Grand Canyon Railway owner Max Biegert sent a letter to Kingman city officials of his proposal to lease AT&SF 3759 to operation and donate his engine No. 19 to the city. 3759 would have run in the Grand Canyon Railway and an "Orient Express"-styled train between Los Angeles and Williams, Arizona. The community reacted negatively to the plan and it did not go forward.
