September 15, 1955 The Santa Fe Railway Company officially dedicated the steam-powered Engine 1809 to the City of Slaton. Presented by W.A.J. Carter, Superintendent of the Slaton Division of Santa Fe, the engine was accepted by Slaton Mayor L.B. Wooton. Engineer J.W. Pettigrew brought the "1809" into the Slaton rail yard for her last journey before being retired. The engine itself was built in 1906 by Baldwin Locomotive Works, a grand old name in steam engines. It has a 2-6-2 wheel arrangement; weighs 242,000 lbs. or 121 tons; could generate a 200 pound steam pressure; has 70-inch drivers, and was used for both freight and passenger service.
