Amoskeag Locomotive Works
From TrainSpottingWorld, for Rail fans everywhere
The Amoskeag Locomotive Works, located in Manchester, New Hampshire, built steam locomotives at the dawn of the railroad era in the United States.
Besides building locomotives for railroad use, Amoskeag also built steam fire engines. Amoskeag fire engines served as the initial fleet for the New York City Fire Department.
Amoskeag built steam locomotives until the division was sold to Aretas Blood and became the Manchester Locomotive Works in 1854.
