ATSF 1096 at Blackwell, Oklahoma, 24 Jan 2022
Author: cozephyr

Retired Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe 1096, 2-6-2, on display at a park in Blackwell, Oklahoma, Monday, 24 January 2022.

No fence nor graffiti-!  She could use a fresh coat of paint.

What the hell is it about display engines that seems to always bring some moron with a bucket of white paint to desecrate the wheels?

Santa Fe sure did have a liking for the 2-6-2 wheel arrangement.  I don't think any other Class 1 railroads had the  2-6-2's

Steamlocomotive.com has a list of railroads that rostered 2-6-2's:

https://www.steamlocomotive.com/locobase.php?country=USA&wheel=2-6-2

Although the text claims the type "did not find favor with the Class I railroads," Santa Fe was definitely a big user, and other Class 1's that had at least a few 2-6-2's include:

That would be a good one to get running. She's already been "de-asbestos'ed". Of course all the brass is gone from the cab.

Have fun, be safe,

And that is one of the Toledo Peoria and Western bay window cabooses that the Santa Fe ended up with when they owned the TP&W for a short while.  Kind of a rare bird for an Oklahoma display!

This is ex-TP&W 528.  Unlike 521 and 523, which were renumbered and repainted into Santa Fe colors as their Ce-13 class for a few more years of service on local assignments, the 528 was retired almost immediately.  It was placed on display behind 1096 at Blackwell wearing a non-standard paint job and the number 999655, which it never wore in service.
