I recently learned that the Davenport company records now reside at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. Davenport produced locomotives at its Davenport, Iowa plant between 1902 and 1956 and a number of their old steam and diesel locomotives still exist. Persons that might be seeking information on them are directed to Becky Thoms at the University of Iowa. Her e-mail address reportedly is:
