Plymouth Locomotive Works, Inc. locomotives

The original name of this company back in 1910 when the first locomotive was manufactured was the J.D. Fate Company. Three companies latter merged together to form the more well known name as the Fate-Root-Heath Company.The Plymouth locomotive was actually derived from the 1st Plymouth car that was produced at this factory.  The car was not built by the Crysler Company it was manaufactured in Plymouth,Ohio & the testing was not successful.  The factory made a decision to disassemble the car & produce its first locomotive which was shipped to the National Fireproofing Company in Haydenville, Ohio. The rest was history & continued to build locomotives in Plymouth, Ohio until the last locomotive came off the factory line in 1999.
