Produced from 1964 to 1966, the SD35, along with its four-axle
GP35 sibling, marked both an end and a beginning. They were the last
road diesels to use the EMD 567 motor that had powered switchers,
F-units, and Geeps since 1939 (so named because each cylinder displaced
567 cubic inches). For the horsepower race of the 1960s, EMD tweaked
the 567 to a turbocharged V-16 delivering 2500 hp. That was it for the
567, however, and in 1966 the baton was passed to the more powerful
model 645. But while the “35 line” diesels ushered out an old motor,
they ushered in a new look. Their angled cab roofs and the clean,
squared-off lines of their car bodies established the look of EMD road
power for the next three decades.

In an era when 4-axles diesels were the norm, the six-axle SD
version was intended for lighter track, because its weight was spread
out over more wheels. Those extra wheels were also an advantage in
lower-speed service with heavier loads. While a majority of railroads
ordered the low-nose version, the Southern and Norfolk &
Western ordered SD35s with the high short nose and often ran them
long-hood forward for better crew protection.

While our Premier model is not the first O gauge version of
this heavy hauler, it offers the best combination of detail, realism,
and performance of any 1/48 scale SD35. Added-on detail parts include
windshield wipers, metal see-thru body grilles, lift rings, metal grab
irons and handrails, see-thru rooftop fan housings, and truck-mounted
brake cylinders and air pipes. Thanks to Proto-Speed Control, this
model can dig in and haul heavy loads at low speeds just like the
prototype, or highball down the mail line with a fast freight. And in
command mode with the DCS system, you can create a lashup combining one
or more SD35s with any other Proto-Sound 2.0 and 3.0 locomotives, and
run them from a single throttle just like the prototype.
