Rapido Trains HO Scale: EMD SW1200 - DCC & Sound - Great Northern

As dieselization progressed, many roads found themselves in need of a compact, lightweight locomotive to replace steam power on branch lines and other over-the-road assignments (freight and passenger) not requiring a full-fledged mainline road switcher. The SW1200 combined the right size and muscle for these assignments. The SW1200 was available with both Type A and Flexicoil trucks, and the Rapido model represents those options. Other features available on the SW1200 include different fuel tanks, unique spark arrestors, MU cables, folding end-platform drop steps and different lighting options as specific to each road.

The HO Scale Rapido SW1200 features

  • Designed from original blueprints and field measurements

  • Heavy diecast frame, chassis and gearboxes for superior pulling power

  • Rapido’s renowned silky smooth-running drive system

  • Working classification lights, cab interior light and inspection lights

  • Fully detailed Type A or Flexicoil trucks, as appropriate

  • Full cab interior with working cab interior light and non-working fire extinguisher and fridge (where appropriate)

  • Working headlights and illuminated number boards at both ends

  • Some models have a rotary beacon or flasher/strobe as appropriate

  • Separate handrails, including crash bars inside the cab

  • Multiple exhaust stack and battery box door styles
