The "Alco-Cooke Construction Number List" indicates that Construction Number 65189 was originally built for "Stock", along with two other units, on Order Number C-750. Construction Number 65189 was later assigned Order Number X-353, Road Number 5, and was shipped to "Okmulgee Northern" during December of 1933. The other two units, Construction Numbers 65187 & 65188, were shipped to "Highpoint Thomasville" and "Birmingham & South Eastern" during June of 1924 and March of 1926, respectively. All three of the units were 2-8-0's with a "Specified" weight of 137,000 pounds (This is not necessarily the "Actual" weight).

I had obtained photo of how Tommy look  when it was delivered to Okmulgee Northern. Phillips Petroleum Co.had sent it to me. Tommy was rebuilt at some point possible because of a boiler explosion in swamp. The original headlamp was on top of the boiler and in front of smoke stack.

The ON #5 has been cosmetically restored without the final lettering on the tender.  The SHRX, Inc. owns the engine and is on display in Belton, Missouri.  Historical information on this engine is available on the "links" page for this engine.  The engine IS MISSING the headlight and SHRX, Inc. would be interested in obtaining the #5 light if it is available.

I am a Garden Rail Roader (G-Scale) in Okmulgee OK. I'm trying to find a copy of the Okmulgee Northern Railway "logo" to add to some of my equipment.

I just purchased a locomotive headlight that was from a collection in Enid Okla to an oregon. collector who offered it on e-bay #2234770798 the number 37 4/5/04 I wonder if there are any images to confirm that it is from okmulgee northern. The one pic shows a loco without a headlight.
