All 'aboard for Bartlesville


Santa Fe steam locomotive 940
In Bartlesville, a 4-8-2 powerhouse of days gone by.
Where you can look out the engineer's window and down the tracks into memory
Driving power
It's the Santa Fe, Not the BNSF!

Bartlesville Depot, done right, and the home of the chamber of commerce. A great place for a little boy to come play and remember when trains were trains, and a testament to an Oklahoma city's pride and commitment to quality living.
