Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 0104 (Locobase 8215)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

This must have been one of the last purchases of the short-lived and financially troubled CP&SW. Its Pekin-Streator (Illinois) stretch only opened in 1873 and the line entered foreclosure in 1879. It was reconstituted as the Chicago & St Louis and persisted in laying track toward Chicago (23rd-St station), which was completed in December 1885.

The C & St L was purchased by the Santa Fe in March 1902.


Class 0111, 0166 (Locobase 8203)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

In the early '90s, the Santa Fe began rebuilding some of its earlier locomotives with new boilers of higher pressure. Werkema's roster shows that this six-engine class had two principal origins:

1900 number Builder Year original name Year rebuilt Retired

0113 Taunton 1870 E Raymond 1891 1915

0115 Taunton 1871 I T Burr 1892 1922

0112 Taunton 1872 W T Glidden 1892 1915

0114 Taunton 1872 Grasshopper 1892 1922

0111 Baldwin 1882 none given 1892 1923

0116 Baldwin 1882 none given 1892 1916

Two others were rebuilt from similar-vintage Eight-wheelers

0166 Baldwin 1872 Kansas City 1892 1921

0167 Hinkley 1880 George O Manchester 1892 1921


Class 0127 (Locobase 8205)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. See also DeGolyer, Volumes 12, p. 252 and 13, p. 132. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema . Works numbers were 7784 and 7787 in January 1886, 8242-8243 in November; 8344, 8347, 8355, 8359 in January 1887.

Although all were renumbered twice, once by the Santa Fe, all but one of this class were sold to other railroads soon after the turn of the century. 71 went to the L&T as engine #1.

The Mobile, Jackson & Kansas City bought 0127 (ex-70) and 0129 (ex-74) in 1902 and gave them road numbers 26 and 27. (The MJ & KC first connected Mobile with the Pascagoula River in Mississippi (1898), then extended west to Hattiesburg (1902), north from Beaumont, Miss. to Jackson, Tenn (1903) and eventually leased the Gulf & Chicago to become the New Orleans, Mobile & Chicago in 1909 under the joint control of the Frisco and the MKT. In 1917, it was reorganized as the Gulf, Mobile & Northern. See James H Lemly's 1953 Gulf, Mobile & Ohio history preserved on http://www.acmeme.org/gmo/, particularly the appendix on predecessor railroads http://www.acmeme.org/gmo/chapter_xxii.htm, both last accessed 23 September 2009.)

76, 73,, 0130 (ex-75) and 0128 (ex-72) were sold to the Jacksonville & South Western as their 23-26. The J&SW served lumber interests in northern Florida and ran from Jacksonville, Fla 125 miles southwest through Gainesville to Double Sink, Fla.


Class 0172 (Locobase 8400)

Data from AT&SF 9 -1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema.

The first of these locomotives bore the name of "Little Buttercup" in the 1880s and arrived as a Hinkley-built engine in 1880. The Santa Fe's shops rebuilt several locomotives to this long-stroke design in 1885-1886.


Class 1 / 0132 (Locobase 8208)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. See also DeGolyer, Vol 13, p. 75. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema. Works number was 8017 in June 1886.

The 1901 diagram shows this single locomotive as virtually identical to the earlier 0127s (Locobase 8205), except for a larger firebox and grate plus shorter, but more numerous fire tubes.

It's not clear just what railroad names adorned this engine. Connelly's notes show that at one point (possibly when it was produced) it was the StJ&StL #1. This line was later renamed the Saint Joseph, Saint Louis & Pacific. Werkema's roster describes the entire class as having come from the Wichita & Western. In any case, the Santa Fe proper gave this engine number 486 in 1890, renumbered it 104 in 1898, and finally gave it 0132 in 1900 as well as its own class ID - E1G. So emblazoned, the 0132 served until it was scrapped in October 1914.


Class 1 / E6A (Locobase 8193)

Data from AT&SF 9 -1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

This big class of Eight-wheelers formed the core of the GC & SF as it began service in Texas. For their time (the mid-to-late-'80s), they had relatively big boilers and fireboxes as well as disposing a high adhesion weight. Manchester supplied a very similar 25-engine class to the Santa Fe in the same year (Locobase 7422) that had taller drivers and slightly less heating surface area.


Class 1 /E1A (Locobase 8195)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1902 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema . See the Meade's Manual report on http://www.atsfry.com/easternarchive/meades/meade066b.htm for a summary of the MA & B's history.

Works numbers werer 435-436 in September 1880.

For a run-of-the-mill, late-1870s Eight-wheeler, this pair had relatively large grates. They were the first two locomotives on the MA&B, a 56.6-mile (91 km) long railroad in Kansas, which had an independent life of less than 30 years. Incorporated in 1872 and opened in 1880, the line was sold under foreclosure on 1 August 1898 to the Burlingame & North Western Railway company, which pulled up the 22 miles of rail between Manhattan & Alma and retained the 34 miles between Alma and Burlingame.

The Union Pacific had been half-owner and sold out to the B & NW in April 1899, a year after the Santa Fe had taken possession of the road. Then the B & NW was rolled into the Santa Fe.


Class 10 (Locobase 11776)

Data from Baldwin Locomotive Works Specification for Engines as digitized by the DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University Volume 10, p. 49 . Works numbers were 5207-5208 in August 1880. and 5638, 5645, 5648, 5652 in May 1881; 5690-5691 in June; 5743 in July; 5747 in August; and 5852-5853 in October.

For some reason, GCSF 35 and 45 were retired in 1902 and 1900, respectively. The others were renumbered in the 019-030 range and remained in service in 1913.


Class 101/18 (Locobase 8903)

Data from AT&SF 9 -1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. See also DeGolyer, Volume 21, p. 86. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema. Works numbers were 15586-15588 in August 1897; and 16213-16214 in September.

These California-based Eight-wheelers were relatively small for the time, but obviously suited the Santa Fe subsidiary just fine.

They were later rebuilt with 69" drivers and remained in service until 1924-1926, except for the 22, which was scrapped in December 1931.


Class 11 / 117 (Locobase 8895)

Data from AT&SF 9 -1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

As with Locobase 8894, the compiler isn't able to pin down the exact identity of this locomotive, although he believes it is as represented.


Class 115 (Locobase 8894)

Data from AT&SF 9 -1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .


Class 125 (Locobase 8904)

Data from AT&SF 9 -1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema.

Even as late as 1920, the diagram shows a classic 1880s Eight-wheeler. In addition to the obvious elements that included a "cowcatcher" pilot, modified, golf-tee style, spark-arresting stack, two domes with one over the crown sheet, the engines also had the equalizing beam visible between the drivers just below the firebox.

The last was retired in 1925.


Class 15/ 0238 (Locobase 2149)

Data from Catalogue Descriptive of Simple and Compound Locomotives built by Brooks Locomotive Works, Dunkirk, NY (Buffalo, NY: Matthew-Northrup Company, 1899, amended by AT&SF 1920 Locomotive Diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Works numbers were 3099-3091 (15-16) in December 1898 and 3296-3297 (18-19) in August 1899

Of the twelve Eight-wheelers ordered by the PV&NE in 1898, this quartet was smaller than the eight shown in Locobase 2152.

Later (1907) Eastern Railway of New Mexico, then Santa Fe (1912), where they were placed in class 0238. 0239 was scrapped in 1913, the others in 1914.


Class 16 (Locobase 8902)

Data from AT&SF 9 -1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

These two Eight-wheelers went into service on the 142-mile line between Hutchison, Kansas and Cross, in the Oklahoma Territory. The H & S came under Santa Fe control in 1899.


Class 2557 (Locobase 854)

Mature American type built at Alco's Cooke shops, but with Walschaerts valve gear rather than the more typical Stephenson link motion. Both had one thermic syphon. 2553 operated at 200 lb psi. and had 18-in diameter pistons.

According to Evan Werkema's Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster -- http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html, visited 6 Feb 2006 -- these were ex-Kansas City, Mexico, & Orient locomotives 501 & 503 that were never actually renumbered. The later of the two in service was retired by 1930.


Class 301/0265 (Locobase 8397)

Data from AT&SF 9 -1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. See also DeGolyer, Volume 29, p. 183. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema. Works numbers were 29355 in October 1906 and 29739 and 29759 in December.

The OCR was built in 1905-1906 to move coal on a 127-mile main line from mines near Lehigh to the Santa Fe connection at Purcell. It was never really viable because the Santa Fe soon switched its fuel source from coal to fuel oil and a 1911 coal-miners' strike led to the closure of the Lehigh mines. The Santa Fe bought the OCR in 1917 "...for 25 cents on each $1000 bond note" according to Wikipedia and merged the defunct line into the main company in 1918.

These small Eight-wheelers were among the first motive power purchased by the OCR. Baldwin's specs matche those of the later Santa Fe diagram except for a small error in the specification's tube heating surface error. In the specs, they were guaranteed to pull 700 tons trailing load up a 0.6% grade. One difference was the later adoption of a thicker tire, which increased driver diameter to 63" (1,600 mm) and slightly reduced tractive effort.

When the Santa Fe took over the OCRR in 1914, it never bothered to renumbered the 301-302. Possibly because of their small size, two of these relatively new engines were scrapped in December 1917. William Edson's notes on the OCRR indicated that the 303 didn't go to the ferro-knacker until May 1922; Al Weber's number by number accounting of Baldwin production agrees with that date..


Class 44 (Locobase 4883)

Described in a 1906 article about Baldwin locomotives on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe. Reproduced on http://www.railroadextra.com/blatsf.hmtl . See also DeGolyer, Volume 7, p. 212. Works numbers were 3832 in February 1876 and 3882 and 3884 in May.

Ordered on 9 October 1875, this quartet came onto the Santa Fe as the Trinidad 44, Colorado Springs 45, San Juan 46, and Del Norte 47 and later renumbered. 24 & 27 had been scrapped by 1901, but the 26 was renumbered 08 and given 58" drivers. It was sent to the ferro-knacker in March 1914.

Colorado Springs (ex-45) went to the San Francisco & Northwestern Railroad as their #6; it was renumbered 13 by the successor Northwestern Pacific.


Class 7 / 0242 (Locobase 8221)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema . Works numbers were 2991-2992 in July 1898, 3014-3015 in August, 3053-3054 and 3070-3071 in October.

This class of Eight-wheelers served the PV & NW and the Santa Fe for just shy of 25 years before being scrapped in 1921-1922.


Class 7/0242 (Locobase 2152)

Data from Catalogue Descriptive of Simple and Compound Locomotives built by Brooks Locomotive Works, Dunkirk, NY (Buffalo, NY: Matthew-Northrup Company, 1899. Works numbers were 2991-2992 (7-8) in July 1898, 3014-3015 (9-10) in August, 3053-3054 (11-12) in October, and 3070-3071

The PV&NE procured twelve Eight-wheeler locomotives from Brooks in 1898. Eight had the specs shown above, which differed from the four shown in Locobase 2149 in having more cylinder volume, more boiler area, and smaller drivers.

Their greater size and power (relatively speaking) may have contributed to their later retirement dates: two went in 1916, one in 1917, three in 1921, and two in 1922.


Class 881/63/0117 (Locobase 8204)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. See also DeGolyer, Volume 19, p. 70. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema. Works numbers were 13914-13915, 13921-13928 in January 1894.

Apparently pleased with the proportions of the rebuilt Eight-wheelers of a few years before (Locobase 8103), the Santa Fe went to Baldwin for more in this class of engines . Somewhat unusually, Baldwin erred on the high side in its weight estimates; when estimates and actual weights differed, the builder usually undershot.

The 1901 diagram shows 73" drivers, but that seems to be a simple typo as the original spec, the 1902 Santa Fe diagram book, and the 1915 Pekin & Peoria Union diagram book all show locomotives of this class with 63" drivers.


Class Colorado Springs (Locobase 8202)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. See also DeGolyer, Volume 7, p. 212. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 February 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema.

The first engine later went to the San Francisco & Northwestern Railroad. Succeeding engines entered service with names as follows: San Juan and Del Norte (3882 and 3884 in May 1876), A G Greely (works 4411 in September 1878), and F A Manzanares (works 4358 in June 1878). The latter two went out of service first in 1907, while 08 lasted until 1914.


Class E1B (Locobase 8207)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema.

This engine was a rebuilt Class 07 engine (Locobase 8202).


Class E1C (Locobase 8212)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

The diagram isn't clear about this small Eight-wheeler, but Locobase suspects that at least two or three engines constituted this class on the SKRR. By 1901, however, only 096 showed on the diagram.


Class E1D (Locobase 8213)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .


Class E1H (Locobase 8209)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

Showing the same power dimensions as the Baldwin from the same year (Locobase 8208) and several others, this pair had relatively large fireboxes. They gave about 20 years of service before being retired in 1907.


Class E2B (Locobase 8206)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1902 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. See also the 1906 Baldwin catalogue describing locomotives the company built for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe and DeGolyer, Volume 8, pp 231 and 261. Reproduced on http://www.railroadextra.com/blatsf.hmtl . This class was slightly larger than the 1875-1878 engines, the cylinders measuring one inch larger in diameter and the boiler two more inches.

Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema. Works numbers were 4347 (May), 4351-4352, 4358-4360 (June), 4417 (September 1878), 4575, 4578 (March 1879), 4595, 4597, 4604, 4611-4612 (April 1879).

Werkema's roster shows that of the group shown in the Santa Fe diagram (037-046), three arrived in 1878, 7 in 1879. Connelly's Baldwin list filled in the rest. The 1878 batch had names: Gen J C Paine, M A Otero, L P Brown, F A Manzanares, J P Seller, W R Morley, and L G Pratt.


Class E2D (Locobase 8210)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

This pair showed a relatively large amount of firebox heating surface in relation to its overall heating surface area. Like all of the Eight-wheelers of the time, however, the design used a narrow grate. 062 was retired in 1907 and 063 followed in 1912.


Class E2E (Locobase 8211)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

Although the Hinkleys described in Locobase 8210 had relatively large fireboxes, this large class from New Hampshire took the palm for 1881. Since the grate area remained at 16 feet, hemmed in as it was by its placement inside the frame, the extra direct heating surface came from a much deeper installation as well as, Locobase suspects, some arch tubes.


Class E2O (Locobase 8216)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

The biggest single purchase of Eight-wheelers for the Santa Fe, these followed the typical 4-4-0 design that included a deep, narrow firebox. The first 14 (and 51) had an 18-sq-ft grate area. The 69" drivers show these were the standard passenger power for the line in the late 1880s.

Satisfying many requirements and numbering in the dozens, the class served the Santa Fe for over 40 years with the last retiring in 1929.


Class E2P (Locobase 8219)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

Werkema shows this single engine to have originally been operated by the Reasor Balanced Valve Company. In other words, this was a demonstrator engine that later entered regular service as a single member of its class. Locobase isn't able to say if the Reasor valves still shuttled in the valve chest. It was retired in 1907.


Class E2Q (Locobase 7422)

Data from original locomotive diagram shown in article on how to convert IHC replica to resemble this last-of-the-Eight-Wheelers . See http://www.atsfrr.com/resources/MooreJB/StmClnic/IHC4-4-0.pdf (visited 6 Feb 2006).

See also AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection.

This Eight-wheeler design had a relatively large grate and firebox area for the time. In fact, although Manchester shipped a slightly bigger engine to the Gulf Coast & Santa Fe (Locobase 8193) in the same year, this class beat the GC & SFs in firebox heating surface (just barely) because of a larger grate.

A mainline passenger engine at first, the type later moved into local service. #95 was the last Eight-wheeler to be retired by the Santa Fe when it was withdrawn in 1940.


Class E3B (Locobase 8214)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

Otherwise similar in all respects to the typical Santa Fe Eight-wheelers of the time, this quartet boasted 160-psi boilers by 1901. Locobase notes a "revised 1-7-1901" date on the diagram and suspects that the higher PSI dates from that revision. The engines probably entered service with boilers pressed at 140 psi.

Like many Santa Fe engines, these engines were given names as they entered service. Respectively, they were General Burnside and Henry C Cobb. 0153 left in 1907, 0154 retired in 1913.

(Two more Rhodies from that same years -- N K Fairbanks, and Levi L Leiter -- became 0155-0156. In 1901, their diagrams had less information, but was available showed fewer tubes (173) of slightly greater length (11.37 ft) for a tube heating surface area of 1,029 sq ft. Locobase suspects that all 4 engines were delivered to these specs and that 0153-0154 were the only two upgraded to the boiler shown in the main specfications.)


Class E3E/E4D/E8A // 132 (Locobase 8218)

Data from AT&SF 9 - 1920 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

Around the same time the AT&SF took delivery of a freight variant of the large 23 class (Locobase 8216) with 18" x 26" cylinders, it accepted these 6 passenger engines also fitted with the larger cylinders. In addition, the engines had larger grates.

The last was retired in 1925.


Class E6C (Locobase 8217)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection and from C&A 6 - 1918 Locomotive Diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema. Works numbers were 2505-2508 in March 1888 and 2509-2514 in April.

An interesting variation on the big class of express engines shown in Locobase 8216. In addition to reducing the driver diameter to freight dimensions, the builder increased cylinder volume. The result was a more powerful, if quite light, locomotive. Eight served the railroad until 1914, but two--123 and 122--were sold to the Toluca, Marquette & Northern as their 150-151 in 1903, which became the Rutland, Toluca & Northern in 1910. In

A year later they were leased by the RT&N to the Chicago & Alton, which placed them in their catch-all D odd class.


Class Governor Burnside (Locobase 8196)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1902 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

Even for its time, this was a small locomotive. Its grate and heating surface areas as well as the adhesion weight number it among the smallest Eight-wheelers operated by a standard-gauge railroad.

According to an article in the Kansas Historical Quarterly by Joseph W. Snell and Don W. Wilson Summer, 1968 (Vol. 34, No. 2), pages 113 to 142.(Transcribed by Barbara J. Scott; digitized with permission of the Kansas State Historical Society.) and reproduced on http://www.kancoll.org/khq/1968/68_2_snell+wilson.htm, accessed 21 February 2007, the usual story of this locomotive's acquisition is slightly askew:

"The locomotive was actually purchased by Charles W. Pierce, treasurer of the railroad, from the Rhode Island Locomotive Works in Providence, about the middle of June, 1869. It was named Gen. Burnside after the Civil War general, Ambrose E. Burnside, who was governor of Rhode Island, an officer of the locomotive works which manufactured it, and a stockholder in the Santa Fe as well as in the construction company building the road. The engine, also a 4-4-0, cost $11,500.ùLetter from Pierce to T. J. Peter, June 20, 1869, in "Treasurer's Letter Books," Santa Fe archives."


Class Thomas Sherlock (Locobase 8201)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1901 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 Feb 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

Class William B Strong (Locobase 8194)

Data from AT&SF 7 -1902 locomotive diagrams supplied in May 2005 by Allen Stanley from his extensive Raildata collection. Information about how many, when, and by whom this class was supplied from http://atsf.railfan.net/atsfstea.html (also visited 6 February 2006), the Santa Fe All-Time Steam Roster maintained by Evan Werkema .

This locomotive is credited to the "AT&SF"and that points to this being the second locomotive built in the railroad's Topeka shops. Evan Werkema's roster information is uncertain (not his fault, the data look highly confusing), but a footnote in a long presentation by Snell & Wilson in the Kansas Historical Society's Autumn, 1968 -- (Volume 34, No. 3), pages 325 to 356 -- account of the birth of the Santa Fe (found on ttp://www.kancoll.org/khq/1968/68_3_snell+wilson.htm, accessed 21 February 2007) points to this being the proper identification.
