Hand made models in edched nickel silver and brass





The EMD SW1 is a 600-horsepower (450 kW) diesel-electric switcher locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between December 1938 and November 1953. Final assembly took place at EMD's plant in La Grange, Illinois. The SW1 used an EMD 567, V6 engine, which generated 600 hp (450 kW). 661 locomotives of this design were built, even though diesel switcher production was suspended between 1942 and 1945 by the War Production Board. The SW1 has a singular look with its sandbox in front of its radiator .
