The first display reads:

# 1526 Baldwin Locomotive

"The Queen of the Frisco Railroad rolled into Lawton, Oklahoma on Friday, July 7, 1961 on her last journey."

Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is one of the most successful builders of locomotives in the world. The company was founded by Matthias W. Baldwin, a jeweler who opened and operated a machine shop. Prior to 1830, the Philadelphia Museum commissioned him to build a miniature locomotive to help demonstrate the concept of steam locomotive technology. Completed in 1831, the success of the minature model resulted in his first order for a full sized locomotive by the Philadelphia, Germantown and Norristown Railroad which was completed in 1832. His business boomed at the turn of the century, when demand for locomotives expanded.

The second display reads:

Whyte Wheel Classification

F.M. Whyte, a mechanical engineer, initiated a way to classify the number of wheels each locomotive steam engine had. This system used in the 20th century, is still being used today.

A zero classification for the front wheels indicates an engine that pulls at slow speeds. Two front wheels signify medium speeds. This locomotive has four front wheels, two on each side. It tells us the engine is used for high speed service, such as passenger service and priority weight. When a larger firebox is pulled by the locomotive, it needs more trailing wheels to carry the load.

Engine 1526: Configuration 4-8-2

oo-OOOO-o

4 – The first number represents the number of small wheels in front of the locomotive, called leading or pilot wheels. These wheels give not only support but stability to the cylinders and smoke box.

8 – The second number represents the number of wheels that actually drive and support the massive weight of the locomotive. These wheels, called driving wheels, are larger than the pilot or trailing wheels.

2 – The third number represents the number of wheels that support the weight of the boiler firebox in the cab. These wheels are called trailing wheels.

The final display reads:

St. Louis – San Francisco Mountains Locomotives

The "Frisco"

The St. Louis – San Francisco Railway bought a total of thirty 4-8-2s from the Baldwin Locomotive Works to be used in passenger service. Fifteen (road numbers 1500 through 1514) were delivered in 1923, five (road numbers 1515 through 1519) came in 1925 and the final ten (road numbers 1520 through 1529) arrived in 1926.

There are six surviving SLSF "Mountains" Locomotives:

– 1501 at a city park in Rolla, MO
– 1519 at the Railroad Museum of NW Oklahoma in Enid, OK
– 1522 at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, MO
– 1526 at the Museum of the Great Plains in Lawton, OK
– 1527 at Spring Hill Park in Mobile, AL
– 1529 at Frisco Park in Amory, MS

It w^as not the regular hour for prayer in the mosque,but a number of worshipers were devoutly kneelingat different places in the interior, with faces turnedtoward a black stone in the south wall, which indi-cated the direction of the holy city of Mecca.

If the Moslems believe in the Bible and in God as asupreme being, why did the}^ destroy the mosaic repre-sentation of God on the ceiling? inquired one of thevisitors. The Moslems do believe in the Bible and in oneSupreme God, was the reply, and it was this verybelief that led them to paint out the picture of Godand to destroy all the images and paintings of saints;for Gods command is: Thou shalt not make unto theeany graven image, or any likeness of anything that is inthe heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath,or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt notbow down thyself to them. The Moslems, continued the guide, regardMahomet as the Prophet of God, and the Koran aswritten by him under the inspiration of God; but theydo not worship Mahomet or any image or picture ofhim.
