OKRail Museum has opened a new exhibition, “The Railway Master” to open to the public on Saturday, February 12, 2018.
The exhibition features artwork by Oklahoma Railway Museum Director Bob Miller, a documentary that tells the story of the Oklahoma Railway, and is the first of its kind in the country.
The exhibition, entitled “The Great Railroad Tycoon,” is being offered at the Oklahoma Railroad Museum at the State Fairgrounds.
“I’m a big fan of railroading, but the thing that I think we need to understand is the role that railroaded people played in the history of Oklahoma,” Miller said.
“The Oklahoma Railroad had a huge influence on the state.
“We’re trying to show how railroade’s role in Oklahoma is very much in the past, but is still part of what the state looks like today.””

The Oklahoma Railway was established in 1911 by the Oklahoma State Railroad Commission, with Oklahoma City being the first city to be built.
The railroad had a long history, stretching back to 1884, when it was built by the first owners of the railroads, a group called the Oklahoma Central Railway.
Oklahoma Central had ties to several cities, including Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
In 1919, Oklahoma Central was merged with the Oklahoma Steam Navigation Company, which was then a subsidiary of the Texas Central Railway, which also had ties with Oklahoma Central.
The merger resulted in the first Oklahoma Steam Railroad.
The Railroad Museum and the Oklahoma-Oklahoma Central Railroad Museum have been in continuous operation since 1932, and the Railroad Museum has three exhibits on its website.
The first, “Railroading and the Industrial Revolution,” is on display.
The second, “America in the 20th Century: The Railway,” is in the main exhibition hall and is part of a collection of artifacts from the Oklahoma and Texas Railway Museum.
The third exhibit, “Oklahoma Railroading: The Legacy of the Railroads,” is a special section of the museum, showing photos and illustrations from the period from 1914 to present.

The exhibit shows a man in a cowboy hat with a black beard, wearing a black shirt, and a hat with the word “ROCK” on it.
He’s wearing a large red coat.
In a white hat he is wearing a coat with the words “Oyster Bay.”
The Railroad Master, the man in the cowboy hat, was the chief executive officer of the railroad and a leader of the group.
He was a big promoter of the trains and his organization, The Railroad Commission of the U.S., was instrumental in building and maintaining railroads in Oklahoma and across the country, including the Oklahoma Pacific Railroad, the first rail-based railroad in the United States.
“It’s important to understand that railroads were a very big part of Oklahoma in the early 20th century,” Kopplinsaid.
“They were a key part of our economy, of our city.”
The railroad was important to the development of Oklahoma as a state and was a major factor in the growth of our state.
“The museum also has a museum and library, as well as the Oklahoma Passenger Passenger Railway Museum, which is dedicated to the history and legacy of the passenger railroads of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The railroads provided an important part of America’s economy and a huge boon to the state, Koppler added.”
Oklahoma was a state that was built on railroad, so it’s important that the railroad is part with the history,” Kargansaid.”
They’re a part-time, part-year tourist attraction.
We don’t have to take a day off work and go see them.
They’re there to see what’s there and to get a look at it.
“But they’re also important to our history, and we want to be a part and we don’t want to forget about that.
We want to preserve that.”
