Between 1966 and 1974, EMD produced 807 of the 12-cylinder SW1500 switchers.
These prolific switchers are easily recognized by their high mounted walkways,
tall, low-radius arched roof cab, dual exhaust stacks, and a long hood
headlight. EMD offered the SW's with either the standard AAR type A trucks or
the optional Flexicoil designed trucks. More than half of the railroads chose
the Flexicoil trucks.
Our model, of course, maintains our high standard for quality and detail.
Beyond the high level of detail, these DC and DCC-Sound equipped locomotives
feature the Paragon3 sound and control system with Rolling ThunderTM!. Each
Paragon3 locomotive comes with BLI's own integral DCC Decoder factory installed
with Rolling ThunderTM bass transmitter for use with your BLI Rolling ThunderTM
bass expansion system. Paragon3 locomotives offer Dual Mode DC and DCC
operation with: superb back EMF motor control in DC and DCC, recordable DCC
operation for automated playback.
EMD's SW1500 was a capable switcher that saw distinguished duty for many
railroads. BLI's model is ready for duty on your layout, and like all BLI
locomotives, she looks, operates, and sounds great!
