Here: https://www.mckeesrocksforgings.com/

I can't resist pointing out that while McKees Rocks Forgings is a "modern" company, on their website "Industries" [served] tab 'header' they feature  what is  clearly a "heritage" steam locomotive.  ;D

Or, here is a screenshot:

The Walt Disney World Railroad is pretty modern when you think of it. The whole railroad has fully working block signaling and has handled 3 trains at the same time quite often.

I was originally about to post some of the lyrics of the:

"The wheels on the bus  train go round and round
 Round and round
 Round and round
 The wheels on the bus train go round and round
 All round the town ... ......
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wheels_on_the_Bus



but then I realized that all of the that was beneath me .... ...   ::)

... then Rick posted his question and I saw that I could instead  respond with a serious post and avoid all the puns.  :P

I kind of figured they were from Mckees Rocks but I wasn't sure.

The driver centers would be cast so that would probably be something for one of the foundries that have been contributing to the project (or perhaps somebody different if the quote is right).
