Montreal Locomotive Works (MLW) was a Canadian railway locomotive manufacturer which existed under several names from 1883–1985, producing both steam and diesel locomotives. For a number of years it was a subsidiary of the American Locomotive Company. MLW’s headquarters and manufacturing facilities were located in Montreal, Quebec.
The “Locomotive and Machine Company of Montreal Limited” was created in 1883, producing primarily for the growing domestic market. The American Locomotive Company (ALCO) purchased it in 1904 to tap into the Canadian market with its emerging designs. The Montreal subsidiary was renamed Montreal Locomotive Works (MLW) several years later. MLW became an exclusive ALCO design shop and acquired a substantial portion of the Canadian steam locomotive market.
MLW grew substantially during the Second World War when its plant facilities were converted primarily to fabricating materiel for the Commonwealth/Allied war effort (largely by a female workforce), including the Ram tank and the Sexton self-propelled gun.
Following the Second World War, MLW and other locomotive builders reverted to building locomotives. MLW's parent, ALCO found itself in financial difficulty in 1964 and was purchased by Worthington Corporation. At that time MLW was renamed MLW-Worthington and continued much as before.
In 1975, the emerging Quebec-based industrial conglomerate Bombardier purchased a majority stake in MLW. In a 1985 corporate reorganization, Bombardier removed itself from manufacturing locomotives and concentrated on producing passenger train rolling stock, as well as aircraft, in addition to its recreational products. The dormant MLW plant was sold to General Electric in 1988. GE closed the MLW manufacturing plant in 1993. (Source: Wikipedia).
