This locomotive was donated to Fort Riley by the Union Pacific Railroad on 7 February 1958 for display as a symbol of contribution toward development of the midwest subsequent to 1865. Manufactured as a coal steam engine in 1908 it was converted to an oil burner in 1941. It was used continuously on Mid-Western lines for 49 years. The locomotive was moved to this site through the joint efforts of the Union Pacific and the 1st Engineer Battalion on 6 June 1958.
