More than likely your refridgerator was made at Ottawa Ohio. The Indiana & Ohio Railroad runs along the northwest corner of the plant but no rail access.
Clyde and the Findlay plants have rail access and it appears they both receive inbound covered hoppers with plastic pellets.
Marion plant appears to no longer have rail access.

Back in the 70's to early 80's PC/Conrail would run a pair of Whirlpool turns from Columbus/Findlay and return 5 days a week. They were large trains ran by a pair of ex PRR Geeps running long hood forward either direction with a caboose on the end, now, the Whirlpool yard is about nothing and all the traffic is by rubber tired equipment.
