I believe it's in the Mid America Science Museum in
Hot Springs, AR and the answer to both of your
questions about it is yes, as I have personally seen
this one in operation. I'm assuming that this is the
remodeled original GOTC, unless the one at that
huge electronics store somewhere in N. California
is the "original".

http://www.ttr.com is Bill Wysock's site. He did the restoration and built the replicas alluded to above. There's quite a bit of info about the coil at the Griffith Observatory on the site.
