1909 Santa Fe Engine and Santa Fe Depot
201 SW Keeler Ave
The AT & SF & MKT Depot Building is home to the only Santa Fe engine 940 series in existence. The 900-class/940 series were the first locomotives to burn fuel oil instead of coal and were synonymous with the Santa Fe engine. Built by Vulcain, this Santa Fe engine, built in 1903, was originally a compound steam locomotive, and later converted to a simplified locomotive that could burn diesel. It has 2/10/2 wheels (2 pilot, 10 drivers and 2 trailing). It is a historical treasure and a reminder of the important role trains of past played in the development of the area.
Railway Enthusiasts - Bartlesville is also the location of a Fairbanks-Morse concrete coaling tower (situated near State Hwy 123 S). It was built in 1923 and has an MKT shield embossed on it. It is one of only two left in Oklahoma.
