Southern Pacific 1293 is an S-14 class 0-6-0 steam locomotive built by Lima Locomotive Works.[2] It was dedicated to the City of Tracy, California, on August 8, 1958,[3] by the Southern Pacific Railroad Company (now Union Pacific Railroad).

Current status[edit]

After Southern Pacific retired 1293 in 1958, SP donated 1293 for display in Dr. Powers Park in Tracy, CA. It remains there to this day,[when?] where it rests on 'Tourist Railroad'. SP 1293 was scheduled to be repainted in 2009.
