Iron Horse

In 1986, Santa Fe donated the entire historical collection of locomotives at Albuquerque, including 5021, 2925, and many of the diesels listed on the main page, to the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento, CA. The collection was moved west in early April 1986. Unfortunately, the CSRM had neither the facilities nor the resources to properly house, restore, and care for the engines. The 5021/2925 and most of the rest of the Santa Fe historical collection is stored outdoors, and mostly out of public view . The museum took the precaution of removing the boiler insulation and most of the "collectable" items on the engine, but the resulting appearance is truly heartbreaking. The museum's long term plans for the locomotive are not known.
