This Davenport 0-4-0T pictured here is #124 and has been moved as of May, 2013 into the building housing the Montana Museum of Railroad History, at the Montana Expo Park (fairgrounds), Great Falls, Montana. It was built and
delivered to the Anaconda Mining Co. as #124 and was mis-identified as #126 located at the World Museum of Mining, Butte. The mining museum does have another identical locomotive on display. No. 124 is 30-inch narrow gauge as listed. Jack Dykstra, Secretary, Montana Museum of Railroad History
