Hello Harrison,

You are on a very interesting and important search for you!  I wish you well.  Would you look through the rest of the Locomobile chat forums below and post your search in the "Locomobile Steam Gathering place"?  I think you may strike a good note with some of the steam Locomobile guys and they may be some help to you.

Best of luck....

Al
