About this Item

Following a long progression of end-cab switchers beginning in 1939, EMD's SW1500 model was introduced at the zenith of switcher production, the 1960s and 1970s. Featuring the builder's newly introduced 645-series prime mover, the model offered customers a unit that was suitable for yard, local, and even road freight service. During the model's eight-year production cycle, no distinct construction changes took place, but options specified by the 58 original customers, such as truck style, fuel tank capacity, and handrail placement, divided the production into eight separate groups. This 124-page softcover book covers these pioneering diesels in text, 110 color and 325 Black and White photographs, and drawings in the style you've come to expect from Withers Publishing. Contents: SW1500 Spotting Features, pp. 8-14; Class 1 Operators, pp. 15-64; Short Line, Terminal and Government Operators, pp. 65-90; Industrial Owner's Gallery, pp. 91-96; SW1500s in Color, pp. 97-120; SW1500 Roster, pp. 121-122; SW1500 Diagram, pp. 123-124. Withers Publishing, softcover, 124 pages, 8.5 x 11 x. 25 in., Black and White and Color photographs, diagrams. Bookseller Inventory # wp468
