Western Pacific SW1500 #1503 with DCC & Sound
  • Between 1966 and 1974, EMD produced 807 of the 12-cylinder SW1500 switchers. These prolific switchers are easily recognized by their high mounted walkways, tall, low-radius arched roof cab, dual exhaust stacks, and a long hood headlight. EMD offered the SW's with either the standard AAR type A trucks or the optional Flexicoil designed trucks. More than half of the railroads chose the Flexicoil trucks.
  • Our model of course maintains our high standard for quality and detail. Beyond the high level of detail, our SW1500's come equipped with our new state-of-the-art sound system - Paragon2. Paragon2 is the new benchmark for premium HO sound-equipped locomotives. These DC and DCC-Sound equipped locomotives feature the ALL-NEW Paragon2 sound and control system. Each Paragon2 locomotive comes with BLI's own integral DCC Decoder factory installed. Paragon2 locomotives offer Dual Mode DC and DCC operation with: superb back EMF motor control in DC and DCC, recordable DCC operation for automated playback, the same detail level as the original Paragon Series, and the familiar sturdy maroon box!
