Wheel Arrangement on Frisco #706
Author: UP951West

I could use some "hep" from some of you Frisco steam experts.
A good friend told me about a derailment of Frisco #706 at Goltry, OK in December ,1946 on the Avard Sub in central OK. What was the wheel arrangement of #706. When was it sold for scrap ? THANKS.

SLSF 706 was a 4-6-0 built by Alco-Brooks in June 1906.  I don't know the scrapping date but some of that series lasted right to the end of steam.  This photo of 706 was taken in Tulsa 2-29-48 by J. L. Hoffman.

Interesting place to put the power reverse!

Frisco used the "backwards" power reverse on a lot of their smaller engines.
I had these photos of the wreck in my files.  I don't know who to credit the photographer.

Gordon and Frisco 1522, I thank you for your help !!  I'll share these photos with my friend. I'm amazed that you had these old images from 1946. --Kelly

These are the other three shots.   I have no clue who the photographer was or even when I got the photos.   This should help.
