There was an article in a magazine several years ago about a reporter, I believe, who was told of an old timer who lived in Ahmeek that knew the whereabouts of this engine. It was rusting away in the "bush" somewhere in Keweenaw County. The two met in the winter and made plans to locate the engine after the spring thaw, but the old man died before they could search for it. The reporter used the notes he had taken during his meeting with the old man and was able to locate the engine and Greenfield Village retrieved it and restored it. It was a pretty interesting article. Having grown up in Mohawk, I remember exploring old mining building in the middle of nowhere with my friends. Who knows what artifacts may still be out there waiting to be found.
