Route 66, Stroud,, OK

East < GO > West

From what I've read a fellow named Paul Hicks built this kids amusement ride train in mid-70s. It sits a few hundred yards east of Graham Road east of Stroud. It’s on the north side of the highway; a livestock corral is on the other side of the road. There is an abandonded section of old 66 on the northwest side of the current road. I've been able to pull in there when we stopped here even though there isn't actual crossover.

GPS: 35.765472, -96.624244

But wait, there's more to this quixotic little spot along the Mother Road. Just behind the locomotive is a great example of the rare and whimsical steel steel cactus!

This poor little calf is still standing so I don't think his apparent demise was the result of an unplanned meetup with the cattle catcher on the front of the Lincoln County Express locomotive.




x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
