Remarks & Notes 
San Luis Central owned only one steam locomotive early in its history, a Baldwin 2-8-0 numbered 1, that was bought new in 1913 and retired in 1955. To celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the railroad, they operated a special passenger train on the 13-mile line from Monte Vista to Center in Colorado’s San Luis Valley. To help with celebrations, neighboring railroad San Luis and Rio Grande relettered and renumbered their 2-8-0 No. 18, to SLC No. 1. On the morning of September 1, 2013, No. 1 simmers in front of the SLC yard office at Monte Vista, Colorado, waiting for the day’s festivities. Behind the locomotive is former Southern Pacific caboose No. 1043.
