    Does anyone know the present status of Frisco 4500 which was moved to a restoration site in Tulsa from Owasso Oklahoma? Has restoration begun? Where is it to be placed once restored?

    According to the database, No. 4500 is stored and they are trying to sell it.

    Sad that such a historical piece of equipment has no value to Tulsa Parks and Recreation.

    as a member of the crew that moved 4500, from owasso to tulsa. it is under cosmetic restoration. the display location is proposed to be on the westside in the riverpark. it is not for sale! be warned though the engine was stripped barebones and the parts was unlabled, so the effort will be a long time to complete. i will try to keep this info up to date as things happen. please be patient. thanks

    Caboose 1104 found in North Denver, Colorado. I believe it was built 6-37 according to marks on side. Anyone know anything about it? I have some photos if anyone is interested.
  7. In branson MO. there is frisco caboose 1156 at the station and I was wondering if any one knows the history of this caboose.
  8. There is a frisco MOW passenger car at oklahoma city OK. that has been converted to a kitchen and sleeper for the workers. They also have a F7A unit that they're try to get it to work but are having problems with the motor. |-|

    Dallas doesn't have a Frisco 0-6-0, but the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis does, the 3695.

    Right! The 0-6-0 at the (now) Museum of the American Railroad, (formerly) The Age of Steam Railroad Museum, is the last steam switcher used by the Dallas Union Terminal Co. (#6). AOS has a |-| 4500 series 4-8-4, and a (Russian) Decapod.

    The last time I saw 4-8-2 #1501 in the Rolla, MO City Park, it had been repainted. Not a very good job, it looked like a Lionel model. I hope someone has updated it.
    This was about 15 years ago. Sadly, I have been in Rolla a couple of times in the last year and didn't think to go get a look.
