The birth of the SW1 in January 1939 was a historic moment for the Electro-Motive Corporation. The tiny switcher (“S” for six hundred horsepower, “W” for welded frame) was EMC’s first truly mass-produced loco, the first with Electro-Motive’s own electrical gear, and the first mass-produced engine powered by the 567 diesel motor – which would become the backbone of first-generation American diesel power. Popular with railroads large and small, the SW1 stayed in production for 15 years, and many remained in service for three or more decades.

Our RailKing Scale SW1 offers Premier level details at a RailKing price. Separately added metal detail parts include front, side, and rear handrails; bell and horn; grab irons to allow access to the top of the hood, and handles for the sandbox lid on the front pilot (which doubled as a convenient seat for yard brakemen). Built to full 1/48 scale proportions, this model also offers authentic, legible EMD builder’s plates and directionally operating front and rear headlights. Single or dual exhaust stacks, per individual prototypes, are also featured.
