EMD SW Switchers
Walthers / Life-Like New Run EMD SW-1200 Switchers

By 1954 railroads were buying diesels as fast as EMD could build them, and customer demand for more powerful units carried over into the switcher market as well. With the introduction of the new 567C prime mover that year, EMD rolled out its new 1200-horsepower SW9/1200 model which shared the same basic body (with minor variations) and power rating with its predecessor, the SW9 (which had a 567B prime mover). SW9/1200s were produced through 1966 when earlier GPs began taking over yard chores, but these later SW models lead long lives with many still serving shortline and industrial roads long after "retirement" by the original owners.
Walthers has announced a new run of SW-1200
switchers in N scale that will have the following features:
* Limited Edition -- One Time Run of These Roadnumbers!
* DCC-Friendly - Use TCS MT1500 Decoder
* All-Wheel Drive & Electrical Pickup
* 5-Pole Skew-Wound Motor
* Die Cast Underframe for Pulling Power
* RP-25 Metal Wheels Operate on Code 55 or Larger Rail
* Micro-Trains Couplers® factory installed.

Life-Like EMD SW-8!
The 800 horsepower EMD SW-8, nicknamed "America's Medium Horsepower Switcher" was a light switcher introduced in 1950. It was used by many roads.
The SW-8 is NOT DCC friendly. If you click on the photo above, you will taken to Train Control Systems web page showing hard-wired DCC installing available for the SW-8/SW900 locos.
