ABOUT THE PREMIER O SCALE GP-9 DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE

Electro-Motive Division’s GP (for “General Purpose”) engines were the brainchild of project engineer Dick Dilworth. In the late 1940s, Dilworth saw that America’s 30,000 miles of mainline rail had been virtually dieselized, but the 130,000 miles of secondary lines that carried half of the nation’s freight traffic were still largely steam-powered. He viewed that as a huge marketing opportunity.

In The Dilworth Story, a book published by Electro-Motive Division in 1954, Dilworth explained how he tried to meet that opportunity: “In planning the GP, I had two dreams. The first was to make a locomotive so ugly in appearance that no railroad would want it on the mainline or anywhere near headquarters, but would keep it out as far as possible in the backcountry, where it could do really useful work. My second dream was to make it so simple in construction and so devoid of Christmas tree ornaments and other whimsy that the price would be materially below our standard main-line freight locomotives.”

ABOUT THE PREMIER O SCALE FISH BELLY HOPPER CAR

Unlike equipment that carried a variety of loads, like boxcars, flatcars, and gondolas, this two-bay hopper was designed specifically for one cargo: anthracite coal on railroads of the eastern seaboard. Its capacity matched the volume of coal that a pair of typical 50-ton freight trucks could carry. And its “fishbelly” slope sheets — the angled floors at either end of the car — were set at precisely the angle at which coal would flow easily from its bottom doors. (Covered grain hoppers, for example, require much steeper slope sheets.)

The two-bay car was ideal for delivery of clean-burning anthracite to coal dealers who served the home heating market. In contrast, dirtier-burning bituminous coal, used more commonly by large industrial customers, often traveled in bigger three- and four-bay hoppers.

ABOUT THE RAILKING SW1500 DIESEL SWITCHER

The end-cab switcher was the advance guard of the diesel revolution, working its way onto Class 1 rosters before road diesels were even considered. Compared with the 0-6-0 and 0-8-0 steamers they replaced, the advantages of diesel switchers were obvious: near-instant start-up and shut down, compared with building a fire and later dumping the ashes; and 360-degree visibility in the chaos of the yards and industrial settings where switchers typically worked. From the engineer’s point of view, the new diesels were cleaner, safer, and easier to operate.

At 1500 horsepower, the SW1500 was the last and most powerful of EMD’s SW line of switchers, which traced its roots back to the SW1 of 1939 — when “S” stood for six hundred horsepower, “W” stood for welded frame, and the pre-GM company name was Electro-Motive Corporation. The SW 1500 and its 1000 hp sibling, the SW1000, were the first switchers delivered with EMD’s second-generation model 645 diesel motor. Visually, the only difference between the two was the second exhaust stack on the SW1500 for its 12-cylinder prime mover.

While it sold quite well, with 808 units delivered from 1966–1974, the SW1500 was born into a declining market for purpose-built switchers. EMD’s best-selling Geeps had popularized the do-anything, go-anywhere road switcher concept, and railroads were quick to see the advantage of road engines that could double as switchers when needed. Recognizing this, the designers of the SW1500 conceived what was almost a mini road switcher, giving its crew the all-around visibility of a switcher, but with a beefier, higher-riding body than earlier SW models, more power, and the option of smoother-riding Flexicoil trucks.
