Hudswell Clarke steam loco model

Model of Hudswell Clarke steam loco built for Iraq

The Middleton Railway in Leeds has this model of a 2-8-4T steam locomotive supplied to the Iraq Petroleum Co by Hudswell Clarke. This model was displayed in the entrance to Hudswell Clarke’s offices.

There are rumours that one of these engines (No.2) had survived in Iraq, and may even still exist, possibly near Kirkuk… does anyone know more?
