I’m busy in the shop at the moment, but I wanted to give y’all something to read.  Here is an article I found someplace years ago.  Sorry, no source to quote, probably an American magazine from the 19teens.

      yep, they show up at swap meets from time to time. There was a neat one at Hanford a dozen years ago, but missing the boiler. And another at Dixon, but also not running. Not many of them are in use anymore.
