    Does anyone know if the FRISCO had any Steam Locomotives in a 2200 series, and if so what arrangement was the wheels. I am making an address plate for the front of my home in the FRISCO coonskin hearald and would also like to aquire a locomotive with the numbers of my house address as well. Any help would certaqinly be appreciated. The number I am looking for in particular is #2202. Thanks In Advance!

    If you are going to make it/have it custom made, just do it! There used to be an address plate on Yale Ave here in Tulsa in the 2XXX sequence. Just across from a church reputed to have a Frisco bell in it's bell tower!

    There is a house in Marshfield that has a Frisco Coonskin street address plate. The man that lived there had worked for Frisco, and I worked with his grandson who had purchased the house from his g'pa's estate. When the grandson sold the place, I begged him to sell me the coonskin, but he was selling the house to a cousin that wanted the address plate to stay! It's still there on Jackson Street, although I don't remember the number off the top of my head.

    Will, Search and ye shall find.
    The Frisco Steam Roster Excell Spread Sheet I generated years ago is posted here on frisco.org. It lists 50 4-4-0s in the 2200 series. Some had three previous numbers. The 2200 series was the last prior to scrapping. Doug

    1212 Finneans Run in Arnold, MD also has one. That is the Annapolis suburb where Sandy and I lived, in three different houses, for 37 years. Alan of the Frisco Museum had a supply years ago. They were nice, but I had to repaint the red background about every two years.

    1212 was a 1907 BLW 2-8-0 originally purchased by the NOT&M.

    Variations of those are all around Springfield, because there were so many Frisco employees. From the real thing to home made wood shop examoles.
