Sign Board
The town of Hallett, 35 miles west of Tulsa, was founded on December 8, 1904 at the junction of the Arkansas Valley and Western Railway which became the St. Louis and San Francisco Railway (Frisco) and the Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad which became the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway (Katy).

This scene is on the Avard Line of the Frisco railroad, a line that stretched from Tulsa to NW Oklahoma, where it tied into the Santa Fe RR. The Avard line is now part of the BNSF system.

In the mid 70s the M-K-T tracks were removed. The physical location of the junction where the two railroads crossed is under the Cimarron Turnpike bridge that now spans the BNSF tracks.
Description & History
An abandoned right-of-way for the old M-K-T line still scars the landscape where it used to cross the Frisco line. The junction tower still stands today. NEONS needed another 2' module to complete its layout at the 2013 Oklahoma City Train Show, so this module was quickly built and made ready for the show.
