History-

   The Little Engine was built by The Plymouth Locomotive Works in Plymouth, Ohio sometime in the late 1960's or early 70's. It was aquried right after it was built by Cedar Point due to it being custom ordered by the park and designed to look like a steam locomotive. It did not cost the park a single cent except for a buschl basket of tickets that allowed all the works at Plymouth Locomotive to spend a day at the park. It is typical of the mining locomotives that Plymouth is known for building with a 0-4-0 wheel arangement and straight 4 gasoline engine with a 4 speed forward and reverse transmission. It is used by the CP&LE for moving dead engines around the shop and yard. It can also move a empty coach set if needed. The little engine is used alot for track work in the spring along with a flatcar for ballast and a small 4 wheel flatcar for tools.
