Southern Pacific Railroad 1673 is a standard gauge 2-6-0, Mogul type, steam railway locomotive built in 1900 by the Schenectady Locomotive Works. It operated primarily in southern Arizona.
It had a starring role in the 1954 film Oklahoma, for which it was fitted with a diamond stack and other turn of the century equipment and colors. It was also the star of the Southern Pacific's 75th anniversary in Tucson, Arizona in 1955 during which the railroad presented the locomotive to the city. It sat in the city's Himmel Park, periodically being painted, but gradually deteriorating, until 2000 when it was moved inside the old Southern Pacific Depot in downtown Tucson.
The locomotive was added to the National Register of Historic Places as Southern Pacific Railroad Locomotive No. 1673 in 1992.
