# 3167

This number is a prime.

On Friday, 7-13-1951, an unlucky date for prime numbers, AT & SF steam locomotive #3167 was lost in the Kaw River flood. It had been deliberately parked on an important Topeka railroad bridge in an ill-fated attempt to stabilize the connection. [Goelz]

The sum of all 3-digit primes beginning with 1 is a prime number, i.e., 101+103+…+199=3167. [Loungrides]

(There are 4 curios for this number that have not yet been approved by an editor.)
