Maumelle Ordnance Works Locomotive 1 is a gasoline powered,
mechanically driven, two axle railway locomotive which was built in
1942 by Vulcan Iron Works for the War Department's Maumelle
Ordnance Works. The Maumelle Ordnance Works were built by the War
Department in 1941 to produce the explosives picric acid, ammonium
picrate, and ammonium nitrate. The plant began production in 1942
and the locomotive was purchased to move freight cars around the
facility, which was spread over 7,000 acres to minimize the risk of
incidents spreading from one production unit to others. The plant
stopped production in August 1945 and was decontaminated and shut
down by November. The land passed through several hands and
eventually became the planned community of Maumelle, Arkansas.
