|Santa Fe #5|
Santa Fe No. 5 (formerly No. 2419) is an 0-4-0 steam locomotive originally owned and operated by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. The locomotive currently is on display at Kelley Park in the Trolley Barn at the History Park. Originally a saddle tank locomotive, it was rebuilt to a western look for the 1948 Chicago Railroad Fair and was renamed "Little Buttercup" after a character in the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, H.M.S. Pinafore.
Preservation and restoration
Little Buttercup is currently[when?] statically preserved in the California Trolley and Railroad Corporation Trolley Barn at the Kelly Park History Park, San Jose, CA. Volunteers have been polishing the brass and cleaning the little locomotive. It is viewable by the public when the Trolley Barn is open for visitors.
