Thanks to you Barn Finds readers, my education continues! Reader Greg P. writes: On March 24th, Jamie said he didn’t know that Plymouth even made pickups until he saw the 1938. I was wondering if he knew that Plymouth made TRAINS. This one is about seven miles from me on display. Greg, thanks for sending in these great pictures! As it turns out, it’s not the same Plymouth, but it’s cool nonetheless!
As you can see, it is a Plymouth, just a different company. The Plymouth Locomotive Works made small train engines from 1910 through 1999. Most were diesels, but some were propane or butane powered, and some of the first ones used gasoline engines, mostly (ironically) Chryslers!
It doesn’t look like this find is in use anymore, but maybe it will inspire some of you to look a little further for those Mopar-related (ok, in name only) finds! Thanks, Greg!
