This old engine went to the junk yard many years ago and it is unlikely that there is one like it in existence. Probably, there were not many of these small N & S compounds built. The writer remembers seeing a picture of one exactly like it in The American Thresherman, many years ago. Courtesy of Carl B. Erwin, 100 S. Elm St., Newkirk, Oklahoma 74647.
