Surviving engines built by the Central Pacific

"State officials want to hear from the public on which Virginia & Truckee Railroad locomotive should be displayed in Virginia City. ... the "Dayton" was built at the Central Pacific Engine Works in Sacramento and first operated on the legendary V&T line in 1873, traveling regularly to Virginia City. ... it’s one of only two surviving engines built by the Central Pacific."

Actually, there are 4 surviving Central Pacific locomotives. The California State Railway Museum owns the other 3: CP No.1, "Governor Stanford", a 4-4-0, CP No.3, "C.P.Huntington", a 4-2-4t, and CP No.233, a 2-6-2t

The article is referring to V&T locomotives built by the CPRR.
