Steam locomotive #1007 was built in the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A "prairie" type train, the engine with a 2-6-2 style wheel arrangement would run on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway lines from 1901 to 1941. After 40 years of service the train used for scrap metal.

After the U.S. Civil War railroads expanded rapidly in Kansas. Traveling through the state on train was one of the safest and fastest ways to cross the country. Over a hundred years later railroads still frequently roll across the plains. For more information please visit: https://www.kshs.org/kansapedia/railroads-in-kansas/15120
