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’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!
