Product Description

This is a model of an SW1001 based off the Reading/Conrail version, and it is designed to fit on a Walthers/P2K SW chassis with minor modification(slight milling of the frame may be required). Coupler striker plate is set to proto 87 standards so it is exact scale.  Prototype Info:The EMD SW1001 was essentially a variant of the SW1000 model. The switcher was constructed two years following its counterpart in the late 1960s and came about because industries disliked the restyling of the SW1000 because the Electro-Motive Division (EMD) situated the walkways and cab eaves higher than on previous models, which didn't allow the locomotive to work efficiently (or even fit) in the tight, confined spaces common within plants and similar properties. By the time the SW1001 was released in 1968 EMD knew that its industrial sales were very important and knew that it had to correct the flaw. Ironically, by having the SW1001 mostly revert back to the earlier carbody styling it saw more than double the sales of its counterpart. As of today, there are no SW1001s known to be officially preserved at a museum or tourist railroad. However, numerous examples remain in active revenue service with short lines, industries as well as Class Is Canadian National, Norfolk Southern, and CSX Transportation. Internally, the model was also an SW1000. It used the same brand new 654E prime mover that was featured in the earlier design, which could produce 1,000 horsepower. Also using General Motors' latest model D77 traction motors the tractive effort rating of the SW1001 was the same as the SW1000. Weight for both models was also the same at 115-tons. The differences came solely with the carbody. Many industries were used to EMD's standard switcher design it had been producing since the late 1930s and as such had tailored their private trackage to fit the model. For example, the new SW1000 had cab eaves too wide and walkway heights too high to operate on many industries' property.To alleviate this problem EMD used the cab and underframe design of the SW1200, and named the model the SW1001 (however, it kept the hood used on the SW1000). By doing so it again allowed industries, which regularly used EMD switchers, to use the SW1001 without the need of purchasing another model or change their property layouts. Interestingly, this variant model of the SW1000 sold better than its counterpart. The switcher remained in production until the early summer of 1986 and ultimately sold some 151 units in the U.S. However, in total the model sold 230 units with six other countries and Canada purchasing another 79. Original Owners reporting marks and numbers: Alabama By-Products Corporation - 1000Aliquippa & Southern Railroad - 1000-1002American Steel Foundries - 9G9-9G10Amoco Oil Company - SE3Armco Steel Corporation - 1-18-38, 1-18-39, 1-18-40, E151-E169, 225, 1215Birmingham Southern Railroad - 18-19, 220-224Central Foundry Division, General Motors - 1971Champion International Paper - 06056Chevrolet Motor Division, General Motors - 96Chicago Short Line Railway - 28-29Coors Brewing Company - C998Corinth & Counce Railroad - 1003-1005Cuyahoga Valley Railway - 1051Detroit Edison Company - 217Dow Chemical Company - 1001-1003, 1008-1009East Cooper & Berkeley Railroad - 2001-2002Electro Motive (Demo) - 117Elgin, Joliet & Eastern - 444-445Ford Motor Company - 10014-10023Galveston Wharves - 301-305Gary Works (U.S. Steel) - 88-90Indianapolis Power & Light Company - No NumberInland Steel Company - 126-127Interlake Steel Corporation - 17-18Intermountain Power Corporation - 11Lake Terminal Railroad - 1021Long Island Rail Road - 100-107Monongahela Connecting Railroad - 420-425New Haven Trap Rock Company - 7357Newburgh & South Shore Railroad - 1018-1022Northwestern Steel & Wire Company - 2-4Olin Chemical Company - 1Public Service Company Of Colorado - 15-1 Reading - 2601-2615River Terminal Railway - 101-108Savannah State Docks - 1001-1002 South Carolina Public Railways - 1001 St. Joseph Minerals Company - 1004 Texas Company (Texaco) - 24 Union Railroad - 101-103  Today, just as with the SW1000 model, EMD SW1001s can continue to be found in shortline and industrial service despite a rather low number of them built. Currently, the locomotive remains in operation with the Branford Steam Railroad, Canadian National (through its inheritance of Elgin, Joliet & Eastern units), Chicago Short Line, Cleveland Works Railroad, Birmingham Southern, New York & Atlantic Railway, Intermountain Power Railcar, ABC Coke, Long Island Railroad, GATX Locomotive Group, Rail Link, CSX, and Amtrak (until 2009 Norfolk Southern also had a small fleet of SW1001s) Credit for info: American-Rails.com
