Step back in time and experience the power and prestige of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe 3751 class locomotives, a true marvel of railroad history. Built in 1927 by the renowned Baldwin Locomotive Works, these "Heavy Mountain" locomotives were trailblazers, being the first 4-8-4 type acquired by the Santa Fe and the first built by Baldwin. Originally designed to burn coal, these mighty machines were converted to oil in 1936 and equipped with larger tenders to enhance their capabilities.

Among these giants, the 3751 stands out with a captivating legacy. On May 7, 1939, it had the prestigious honor of pulling the Scout into the newly constructed Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal, marking the first time a steam locomotive brought a passenger train into Union Station. In 1941, the 3751 class underwent significant upgrades, including the installation of 80-inch drive wheels, a new frame, and Timken roller bearings on all axles. These enhancements allowed the locomotive to reach a remarkable speed of 103 MPH.

Today, three locomotives from the 3751 class endure. The 3751, meticulously restored in 1981 by the San Bernardino Railroad Historical Society, continues to operate for special excursions and events. The 3759, famed for hauling the “Farewell to Steam” excursion between Los Angeles and Barstow, remains a symbol of the end of an era. 

In our highly anticipated first production run, we are thrilled to offer six exquisitely painted models and one unlettered version. Our initial production run includes four in-service Santa Fe models, two variations of 3759 (both in-service and as it appears today), and the 3751 as it appears today.

Each locomotive is available in Paragon4 Sound/DCC or our Stealth Series, which features No-Sound/DCC-Ready options. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of railway history. Order now and bring the legendary Santa Fe 3751 class locomotives to your collection!
