In 1948 the Santa Fe rebuilt a locomotive for operation at the Chicago Railway Fair. The saddle tank was removed and a tender was added. To complete its new appearance, the locomotive received a large smokestack, headlight, bell, and a colorful paint scheme. It was named Little Buttercup after an early Santa Fe 4-4-0 steam locomotive from the 1880s.
