KO&G NW2 1001 is seen crossing the Arkansas River with a string of high-level passenger cars.

This photo shows the Lefeber yard in Tulsa. It was on the west bank of the Arkansas River between the river and a refinery. Cherokee Yard of the Frisco was beyond that refinery and US66.

Kansas Oklahoma & Gulf NW2 #1001 served as a yard switcher in Tulsa, OK where this photo was taken on 1/2/63. Although the top name on the herald is Midland Valley, this unit was owned by KO&G.
