Thanks for the input Rich and Jack!

Is the quartering "either right or wrong",

Generally, yes.

or can /does a locomotive go "off quarter" from wear between rebuilds?

It can go out of quarter do to wear on the crosshead & piston rod assemblies, as well as wear in the mounting/bearings of the main rods.
