Well finally you guys can see a couple of our Plymouths that came from the undergound clay mine for the Stone Creek Brick Co. in Ohio.

The orange locomotive is:
Plymouth
Model: DDT
Gauge 36"
Weight 8 ton

This unit was originally built for the Dupont factory with a cab in Carneys Point, NJ.

Plymouth removed the cab & changed the fuel system so it can operate underground.

The yellow locomotive is:
Plymouth
Model: HMD
Gauge 36"
Weight 8 ton

Built for Stone Creek as a Hydrostatic drive model

The yellow Plymouth has a 2002 or 2004 Cummins diesel in it.

Can you guys imagine running that orange locomotive underground, check that smoke out. The fan at that mine was not that big.

The one at Pioneer should be a different model.

We have a guy in our group that THRIVES on cummins in his dodge truck but............. the truck is always braking down but the cummins is fine. He reads the posts so we decided to wake him up a little. We run Ford super duty trucks & all I can say is that when we over load them on a weekly bases & the only things that brake are when we push them to an extreme.

That is why we stated at least this cummins is not in a dodge.
