OK nitpickers, here you are! A C Co #2, Arizona Copper Co (Coronado RR) was originally built as an 0-4-2T for the Coronado RR (20" gauge) CN 507, built 7/1882 by H K Porter. This loco was abandonded along with 2 others (#5 & #7) high on a hillside near the Coronado Mine. The 3 "lost lokies" were brought down some years ago and are all residing at various museums in AZ. Coronado RR #8 "Copperhead" is still at "home" in Clifton, AZ near the Greenlee Co. Historical Society museum (the old Clifton station)where the Coronado RR ran.
Aren't you glad that you asked???

Charley-that's some dee-light-ful stuff!! I just love those little pokey lokies and cars. Herbert may have been thinking about how the Englishmen run their large scale locos, a reverse lever or some such to operate the battery powered engine whilst they imbibe in some single malt or stout ale. Eh whot??
