One of the first switchers offered by Electro-Motive Corporation, the SW-1 has enjoyed a history of long service and a reputation for reliability and simplicity. EMC/ EMD built 661 of this model between 1938 and 1953 with production interrupted during WWII. Dozens of railroads and industries purchased the model. On more than one occasion, an SW-1 would be the first diesel on the roster. Producing 600 hp, the SW1 remains a perfect option for light switching duties in industries, coach yards or even excursion trains. Bringing the SW-1 into our line, Lionel has made extensive upgrades to offer this locomotive with many sought-after features. The SW-1 now features for the first time LEGACY and Bluetooth control, LEGACY RailSounds, fan-driven smoke and fixed pilots. A single-motor drive coupled with our Odyssey II speed control combine to give reliable slow-speed performance to help you spot those cars. With so many paint options available it was hard to settle on just these few, but this selection offers a good perspective on the prototype's history with paint schemes from the 1930s to the present day on railroads and industries large and small.
