Description 

This is a Plymouth Locomotive, No. 5743.  
  • Model DDT
  • 56 1/2" gauge (standard gauge to run on railroad track)
  • 10 ton
  • Detroit 3-73 diesel engine
  • Allison transmission
  • Made by the Fate-Root-Heath Company in Plymouth Ohio.
  • I believe it has air brakes as well as an air horn.  
  • Seats 2.
  • The locomotive is about the size of an SUV and would fit in a garage if needed.  It measures approximately 12'6" long, 6'8" wide, 6' high (not including lights on cab).
The US Army originally purchased this locomotive to move munitions around at a US Army Base where they were manufactured.  This unit was in service at the plant until 1995 when the plant was closed.  It was purchased by a private railroad contractor and was actively used until 2003.  It has been at the contractor's storage facility in Shreveport, Louisiana since then.  
 
Physical inspection is available in Shreveport by appointment only. 
 
The unit is in working condition.  With a new paint job this would look fantastic.  The unit is missing a rear window as visible in the photos below and another one is cracked.
 
Buyer is responsible for arranging shipping.  Seller can help load for shipment.  Local shipping may be available for additional charge.  I believe the locomotive weighs in the range of 12,000
