Photograph article dated March 22, 1948 reads, "The Sunland Park streamlined steam engine stood officially dedicated today after unveiling ceremonies conducted by O. W. Coffman, owner and builder. Weighing some 2600 pounds, the model train is composed of an engine, tender and four cars with accommodations for 32 passengers. The track is 16-inch gauge and has a 600-foot circumference. Coffman, who also designed the engine, has made a hobby of engine building on the miniature scale more than twenty years."
