Southern Pacific engine
#1673 is used in the screen version of the famous Rodgers & Hammerstein
musical Oklahoma. The railroad portion of the movie is
filmed at Elgin, Arizona, one of the normal stops along #1673's route. The
engine is fitted with a special diamond smokestack and painted turn of the
century colors. Also appearing in the film is the Elgin station of
the now defunct New Mexico and Arizona Railroad. It is the last real
action the engine would see in its career.
