Walthers Proto 920-41421 HO Scale EMD SW9 Diesel Locomotive Norfolk and Western NW 2244 DCC Sound

Perfect for Yards & Locals

By 1954 railroads were buying diesels as fast as EMD could build them, and customer demand for more powerful units carried over into the switcher market as well. With the introduction of the new 567C prime mover that year, EMD rolled out its new 1200-horsepower SW9/1200 model which shared the same basic body (with minor variations) and power rating with its predecessor, the SW9 (which had a 567B prime mover). SW9/1200s were produced through 1966 when earlier GPs began taking over yard chores, but these later SW models lead long lives with many still serving shortline and industrial roads long after "retirement" by the original owners.

Model features include: * QSI(R) Sound & DCC Operates on both DCC and DC; features Variable RPM Engine, Horn, Bell, Squealing Brakes, Doppler Effect, Air Let Off (in neutral), Headlight and Trailer, which mutes whistle and bell for double-heading. * Heavy Die Cast Chassis for Maximum Traction * 5-Pole Skew Wound Armature Motor * Precisely Meshed Gears for Silent Running * Machined Brass Flywheels * More Than 60 Factory-Applied Detail Parts * Consumer-Applied Parts Package * Low Speed under 3 Scale MPH * LED Constant & Directional Headlights * Proto MAX(TM) Metal Knuckle Couplers * Cab Interior with Crew * See-Through Foot Boards

This model is detailed to match phase 1 prototypes with closed step risers as they appeared from the early to late 1970s. Norfolk & Western specific details include:

* Dual Lens Headlights

* Standard Size Fuel Tank

* Firecracker Radio Antenna

* Leslie A-200 Airhorn

* Square Truck Journal Boxes
