Frisco No. 1632 is a type of 2-10-0 Decapod steam locomotive. It was Built in 1918 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works as USRA #1199, the locomotive was sold to the Southern, where it was renumbered #8033.

Two years later, #8033 was sold to the Frisco as part of a batch of twenty, which were renumbered #1613-#1632.

It was converted to Standard Gauge, and given to the Pennsylvania Railroad, before being purchased by the St. Louis–San Francisco Railway.

It was stored serviceable in their shops but was later moved to the depot museum in Franklin County, KS, for static display.

The Smoky Hill Railway & Historical Society received #1632 in 1965 as a donation from Eagle-Picher.

The locomotive is now a static display at the Belton, Grandview & Kansas City Railroad.

TriviaEdit

In 1951, #1632 was one of five Decapods sold by the Frisco to the Eagle-Picher Company (#1615, #1621, #1625, #1630 & #1632).

Around 1995, the volunteers and members of the railroad worked with the Santa Fe Railroad, the Iola, KS, National Guard and Kansas City Southern Railway to load and move the locomotive to Belton where it currently resides.

The class survived intact until the end of steam on the Frisco, and appear to have done more than branch line service, probably also serving on "High Line" passenger service, as well as extra passenger trains carrying veterans' specials.
