    Please see this link for a photograph of Frisco passenger car single window coach SLSF 1062.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/citizen...61820/sizes/l/

    The coach was moved from Jenks, OK to the museum in 2006. It can be viewed from N. Harley St.

    The passenger car is on display at the Drumright Historical Society museum. The museum is based out of the 1915 Santa Fe depot. The car is located on the north side of the street, just northwest of the depot. Please see http://www.drumrighthistoricalsociety.org.

    At this location there is also an as yet unidentified Frisco 1100 series wood caboose. Please see http://www.drumright.net/museum2.htm.

    Please help us with any information that can help identify the specific car number, additional history or chain of custody information for this caboose. The caboose was acquired from an area family who had used the car as a guest house on their farm.

    The address is 301 East Broadway, Drumright, OK 74030.

    Please see http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...11,354.58,,0,5

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    I'm really glad to see the photos of 1062. For quite a long time it alternated with 1068 as the regular coach on 709-710. I remember it well, partly because of the similarity of its number with that of 1602 that was the regular snack car, but also because it had trucks with integral cast pedistals and unit brakes. I had no idea the car was still in existance.

    Please see the following link for a photograph of Frisco coach SLSF 1062.

    The car at the time of this photograph was located in city park in Jenks, OK. Jenks is a suburb of Tulsa, OK. The car has subsequently been moved west to a museum in Drumright, OK.

    The passenger car is on display at the Drumright Historical Society museum. The museum is based out of the 1915 Santa Fe depot. The car is located on the north side of the street, just northwest of the depot. Please see http://www.drumrighthistoricalsociety.org.

    Now the 1967 photo of the 1062 in KC, MO that SIRFOLDALOT posted IS the actual 1062 and IS the car that we have at our museum in Calera, AL. Im not sure what the other car numbered 1062 is that is shown painted green and read in photos in this topic is, but I cant imagine Frisco having more than one heavyweight coach with the same exact number. I know ours is correct because it is the same number that the car had on it when Frisco donated it to the museum probably not too long after the photo posted from 1967 was taken.

    I wouldn't know anything about cars after they had left the Frisco. I've heard there was some mis-numbering and mis-naming after certain pieces of equipment had left the Frisco, but that's beyond my scope of interest. There are others on this chat board that are more focused on following the cars after they were sold or donated and maybe someone else here has more information.

    I know, I cant speak for the other car either, but I know for a fact ours is the actual 1062 because it was lettered that when Frisco gave us the car and equipment on the car is all numbered 1062 as well. Perhaps someone will post with further information as to why the green car is numbered incorrectly.

    I first visited the Jenks coach about 14-15 years ago and was surprised find it was numbered 1062, since I knew that the real 1062 had been in Alabama for many years. After examining the car closely, I decided that it was actually the 1064. The business located inside the car, which I believe was the Jenks Chamber of Commerce, had some photos of the car when it was delivered to the site painted in Frisco MW silver, with an MW number clearly visible. I can't put my hands on the MW list at the moment, but when I looked up that number, I found that it was the former 1064. Also, it had, or still has, I suppose, the number 1064 on each truck sideframe. I think I remember the numbers were on small steel plates riveted to the truck. The last clue is that photos of the 1062 while it was in service show that it had 3 vertical riveted seam plates on the lower body panels. This car doesn't. Neither did 1064 when it was service. I'm not sure why it was misidentified, because the the original numbers were usually legible under the MW paint.

    Do you have a photo of 1062 as it appears today that yo9u could post on this site? Also, do you all not also have the "Glendale", snack car 1603 that ran for a period on the Texas Special?

    The colors are fairly close to the 1940's "look." Blue, a little faded, roof should be "dove" gray and the stripe along the bottom should be same as the lettering (Imitation gold). But hey, it's lucky not to have been melted down to razor blades...
