Photograph shows the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Locomotive 940, a day after a snow covered area, at its final resting play by the restored Santa Fe Depot in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
Built in 1903 and the sole survivor of 332 “2-10-2” engines, the 940 served as a workhorse for over 50 years in the early 1900’s for the AT&SF Railway. She travelled through Bartlesville for several years pulling freight cars. After she retired in 1954, the 940 was donated to the City of Bartlesville as a display unit until 2009. At that time several volunteers along with the expertise of Service & Technology Corporation formulated a unique plan to move her to its current location on a a 200-foot-long display track. The move took engineered lifting mechanisms, specialized 64-wheel trailer, and cranes to transport her on a cold snowy day. Since the move she has been equipped with a caboose and oil tank car.
