A few I can think of are: Armstrong, Associated, Knox, Sandow, Davis, Sherman Smith, Sandow, Geo. Miller, Galloway and of course Waterloo Gas Engine Works and the Waterloo Boy. I'm sure I'm forgetting quite a few more . WOW what area for pouring cast iron and making it run. What a neat time in history.

I just thought of another one. The farm implement plant was on the North end of town. Litchfield engine. I've only seen a couple of pics of them. Not in person. Looks similar to a modified Fairbanks pumper engine. Ported exhaust big cooling fins. Neat.

Some Waterloo Boy Engines where rebadged John Deere.... at least in Australia. Did this occur in the states?

Didnt John Deere buy out or have major shares this company? I recall someone mentioning this being a reason for JD wacking the badges on the WaterlooBoys????
