Frisco 4-8-2 #1522 on Display at National Museum of Transportation in St. Louis

The Frisco 4-8-2 #1522 was one of America's beloved excursion steam locomotives throughout the late 1980s and into the 1990s.  Across much of the Midwest and the South, many of us saw the Frisco #1522 steam back to life.
As a young railroad artist, I was truly lucky to be one of the faithful at trackside when the 1522 double-headed with the Norfolk and Western 611 on its way to the National Railway Historical Society convention in Atlanta in 1994.  That was truly a once in a lifetime experience.
