WalthersMainline EMD SW1 Western Pacific™ #502 (silver/orange) - HO Scale

In 1939, Electro-Motive Corporation launched one of its most successful diesels, the SW-1. Intended for all types of switching work, the new loco was a much-improved version of the earlier SC and SW models, equipped with the new six-cylinder 567 prime mover. Production was halted during WWII, but resumed quickly in 1946 at EMD's Cleveland, Ohio plant. With minor modifications, a total of 661 were built through 1953, with some still going strong on short lines and museums after decades of service!
