Remarks & Notes 
Santa Fe 4-8-4 Northern-type steam locomotive #3751 poses in front of the Grand Canyon Depot after arriving with the 'Grand Canyon Limited'. Built by Baldwin Locomotive works in 1927. With 80 inch drivers and a tractive effort of 71,719 lbs, she was the first locomotive to bring a passenger train into Los Angeles Union Station on May 7, 1939. On retirement, she lay on display in a park for 28 years before being restored & put back into excursion service by the San Bernardino Railroad Historical Society in 1991. For more pics of this train see my web page on the Grand Canyon Limited at http://northamericabyrail.info/usa-west/the-grand-canyon-limited/
