Athearn's "Hustler", an HO MDT Plymouth, and a teeny Plymouth HOn30 (whatever it's name was) are part of my necessary collection.

Working on, restoring, and running real Plymouth critters in museum service has always been a high point in my life.
Tonight's forecast - dark. Followed by scattered light in the morning.

Looking for information or photos about a Plymouth locomotive. I tried searching but cannot find anything more than this and photos of a 45 ton Plymouth never specify if this is the one, there are a couple of different designs making ID a bit harder.

There is a Plymouth at the Henry Ford Museum ('The Ford") in Dearborn They restored the mechanicals about 5 years ago
The New York Museum of Transportation has a 4 wheel, 4 gear gas fueled unit.
A small number of them sit on a siding south of Baltimore near the Ft Smallwood Road bridge
Hey That's all I got
