Santa Fe 3415 is a restored steam locomotive that is owned by the Abilene and Smoky Valley Railroad. Retired in 1955, it sat in Eisenhower Park in Abilene, Kansas until April 1996. At that point, it was donated by the City and put on display in the Abilene and Smoky Valley yard. Restoration began in 2005 and was completed in early 2009. It is planned for the locomotive to operate about once a month during the normal operating season. Its first revenue trip was on May 23, 2009.[2]
