This locomotive is of the "Consolidation" class, having a wheel arrangement 2-8-0. Santa Fe classified it as 2535 series.

The wheels are of medium size, indicating that it was intended for medium-speed, freight duty.

Number 2546 is one of 15 locomotives built at American Locomotive Works in Pittsburgh, PA in 1910, for the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient Railroad. Its original number was Number 212.

The KCM&O Railroad was bankrupt and operating in receivership when the Santa Fe purchased it in 1928.

This locomotive was rebuilt in 1928. At that time it was fitted with dual water injectors, and a compressed air powered reverser.

Restored and rededicated September 12, 1998 in honor of Santa Fe employees who lost their lives while on the job.
