Introducing the Proto 2000 EMD SW9/1200 Diesels in HO Scale!

December 6, 2009

In Service: 1954 – Present.

Primary Assignment: Yard and industrial switcher, one preserved unit.

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 have lead long lives, with many still serving shortline and industrial roads long after “retirement” by the original owners.
