Description

DCC AND SOUND EQUIPPED MODEL
Large Hood Lettering

As dieselization progressed, many roads found themselves in need of a compact, lightweight locomotive to replace steam power on branch lines and other over-the-road assignments (freight and passenger) not requiring a full-fledged mainline road switcher. The SW1200 combined the right size and muscle for these assignments.

The SW1200 was made available with both Type A and Flexicoil trucks, and the Rapido model represents those options. Other features available on the SW1200 include different fuel tanks, unique spark arrestors, MU cables, folding end-platform drop steps and different lighting options as specific to each road.

General Motors Diesel (GMD) began production of the first 1,200-hp SW1200 switcher model in January 1954. Built until May 1966, over 700 examples of this versatile road switcher were built by EMD with an additional 280+ built by GMD in Canada.

Features:
Heavy diecast frame, chassis and gearboxes for superior pulling power
Rapido's renowned smooth-running drive system
Working number boards and classification lights
Fully detailed Type A or Flexicoil trucks, as appropriate
Full cab interior with working cab interior light
Working headlights, inspection lights and illuminated number boards
Separate handrails, including crash bars inside the cab
Multiple exhaust stack and battery box door styles
With or without working drop steps, as appropriate
Incredible underbody piping and conduit detail - a Rapido hallmark
ESU Loksound decoder with accurate recordings from a 567 prime mover
