Couple of links here.

A webpage I haven't seen before, thought I have seen Harry's website. From archive.org:

A brief news article and video with mention of plans to get 'er running:

This looks to be a 3" scale train on widened 18" gauge track? This was often done on older grand scales trains like Cagney's, etc.

I owned a Coffman for a short period of time and posted on Chaski looking for some help in finding out where it may have run up in New England. The topic can be found at:

It was a nice locomotive, but I already have a big project in hand so sold it off. Its another one I wish I had kept.
