- G. Ernest Daniell was a master machinist at the Charleston Naval Shipyard. He built a Cole four-cylinder compound 4-4-2 in 3/4 inch scale. This is believed to be Ernest's only steam locomotive, though he built several other live steam models in his home workshop. Among these was a Corliss stationary engine and a triple expansion marine engine.
- The Cole compound locomotive was fired by propane with fuel from a trailing tank car. The model was three feet long and weighed 30 pounds.
