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

Our SW1 includes dual pickup rollers on each truck, making
this model nearly stall-proof on any three-rail O gauge switches,
despite its short wheelbase. Throttle down as low as three scale miles
per hour to muscle a heavy cut of freight or passenger cars around your
terminal – and maintain that speed as long as you wish, thanks to
Proto-Speed Control and twin flywheel-equipped motors. Listen to the
authentic chant of a first-generation EMD 567 motor. Pick up and drop
off cars wherever you like, with remotely activated front and rear
Proto-Couplers. Our full-scale, fully featured model of this tiny EMD
workhorse offers everything you could want in a hard-working yard
