BROOKVILLE, Pa. – In 2018, Brookville Equipment Corporation (BROOKVILLE) is celebrating its 100th year in business, serving rail, mining, and public transit industries with rail-mounted equipment. The company began in 1918, when L.A. Leathers, a local Ford dealer, installed flanged rail wheels on a Model T. Later, the company developed into a custom manufacturer of gasoline and diesel-powered switching locomotives for mining, logging, and industrial applications.
Today, BROOKVILLE is a leading manufacturer of custom rail-mounted underground mining equipment, industrial and passenger locomotives, heritage streetcar vehicles for cities like New Orleans, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, and Liberty StreetcarsTM, currently operating in Dallas and Detroit.
Over its 100-year history, BROOKVILLE has shipped more than 4,500 rail vehicles and exported to more than 80 countries and territories.
As part of BROOKVILLE’s centennial celebration, the company is currently seeking the support from its industries and local community in gathering historical data and artifacts, including photos and other relevant information, regarding its early history and products, which may be shared and used by the company in literature and other commemorative materials. Local community or industry members in possession of photos or who have insights into the early years of the company may send the photos with supplemental information or any other historical data to Amanda Anger at email@example.com.
Photos and information can also be scanned in-person, on-site, and immediately returned at BROOKVILLE’s 175 Evans Street facility in Brookville, Pa. between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, or mailed to: Brookville Equipment Corp., Attn: Amanda Anger, 175 Evans Street, Brookville, PA, 15825.
