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
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...
