Driving Wheels of the Frisco 4500

This was taken with a Mamiya C33 in 1999. Taken on a day playing hooky from work (at the time, Whirlpool). This engine used to pull passenger trains on a daily basis, then was assigned freight duties, then retired and donated to the city of Tulsa in the mid-1950's. For years, sat in Mohawk Park, then around 1990, a local group tried to restore it, but ran out of financing. Moved to another location in north Tulsa in 2005 or 2006 and is being cosmetically restored.
