1522 Under Steam For Her Final Run

Frisco 1522 is a 4-8-2 Mountain Type steam locomotive built in 1926 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Phildelphia for service on the St. Louis - San Francisco (Frisco) Railway. Retired by the Frisco in the early 1950's, she was donated to the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis for display. In 1988, the all volunteer St. Louis Steam Train Association completed a 3 year restoration of the 1522, beginning her second career as an excursion engine throughout the Midwest and South.
