The Kansas City Southern Railway needed additional motive power to help out
moving wartime traffic and bought ten second-hand "Santa Fe" 2-10-2 type
locomotives in 1942. It bought six from the Wabash Railroad and four from
the Ann Arbor Railroad. The six from the Wabash were former numbers 2504,
2506, 2508, 2511, 2521 and 2525. The four from the Ann Arbor were former
numbers 190, 191, 192 and 193.
The ex Wabash locomotives were built in 1917 by the American Locomotive
Company and the ex Ann Arbor locomotives were built in 1919 by the Baldwin
There are no surviving KCS 2-10-2 .Santa Fe. type locomotives.
