MTH® RailKing® MP15DC Diesel Engine w/Proto-Sound 3.0 Chicago Northwestern, O Gauge 

The MP15 was the last in a line of EMD end-cab switchers that stretched back to the prewar SW1. By the time the MP15 debuted in 1974, the multipurpose road switcher, descended from the Alco RS-series and the EMD GP7, had become the universal locomotive. The cab unit was already a dinosaur and the single-purpose yard engine was rapidly headed for extinction. To create a more versatile switcher, EMD gave the MP15 a longer frame than its predecessor, the SW1500, in order to fit it with the same Blomberg trucks as a road engine. Those better-riding trucks, along with more weight, a larger fuel capacity, and bigger sandboxes, made the MP15 suitable for road duty as well as switching, and allowed EMD to sell more than 500 units before the last MP15 was delivered in 1987.

M.T.H. returns their full-scale version of the last and largest of the end-cab switchers to the RailKing Scale line. The model replicates the more-traditional MP15DC with its front-mounted radiator and air intakes. Like its prototype, this RailKing Scale engine is equally at home doing slow-speed yard duty or hauling commuters or freight along your main line.
