I was at a garage sale and bought a data plate (for 50 cents),
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it would of been
on? The plate is cast iron ?, 5 inches by 12 inches (guessing),
weights 8 to 10 pounds. The plates says:

Transportation Corps
US Army
5 ton Locomotive
Gasoline Mechanical
TC Spec. 4346
USA No. 1978 P.O. No. TC-3529
Manufactured by
Fate-Root-Heath Co.
No. 5028 Date 4-13-45

A picture would be nice. Has to be some type of construction equipment,
but I don't understand the locomotive part. Plate is yellow, but I see some
green on a few chipped places.
