Plymouth"Plymouth was the brand name under which the J.D. Fate Company of Plymouth, OH began building gas locomotives in about 1909. It became Fate-Root-Heath in 1919, Plymouth Locomotive Works in the late 50's, and Plymouth Industries in the late 70's. In 1999, the locomotive line became part of Ohio Locomotive Crane and the original factory was closed, with the remaining production moved to Bucyrus, OH. " (1) It is now part of Williams Distribution

Plymouth built is first diesel in 1927, and it has been the country's most prolific small gas and diesel locomotive builder, with 7500 to date. Most of these are small mine and industrial locomotives of less than 25 tons. They are noted for their torque-converter locomotives, and almost all later production uses that type of transmission.(1)

 Plymouth is about 55 miles sw of Cleveland on the ex-B&O Sandusky - Mansfield line (Ashland RR operates this portion today).Also crossing the B&O just behind the shops is the Wheeling & Lake Erie (ex-Akron Canton & Youngstown RR). Most of the units were shipped out of here on the B&O. 1987 Gary Morris
