Well, you can get darn close to that info in Lowell Dingus' book "Great
Fossils at the American Museum of Natural History: Next Of Kin".

Chapters 4 and 5. In particular page 105. Caption: "In the 1950s
Tyrannosaurus was also displayed in the Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs"

In the picture, there's the rex, to its left is a triceratops, then a wall
with windows. Behind it are two more mounts, tho I can't tell for sure
what they are. The rex was also on display in 1921 (page 124) and 1927
(page 89).

As you'll be able to tell from the pictures, things moved around a lot.

Not sure I know what you mean by line order...
