Looking for SW 1200/800 switcher

Postby Shipsure » Wed May 10, 2017 3:27 pm

So I've been looking around and I am guessing all the MTB Sw's are sold out? Anyone know a source, preferably domestic (US).

Thanks

Is the chassis used for the SW 8/1200 used on any current TT scale model out there? I may print up a SW1500 which will work on the same chassis and better for the time period I am modeling.

Thanks

If I can get a shell and sideframes, I plan to scratch build a chassis using NWSL motor, gears and wheels. While not exact, .088 HO wheels come close. An HO 36" wheel is 41-1/2" in TT, .012" oversize. A 33" wheel is about the same undersize. NWSL will make up custom geared wheelsets for a small fee as long as they don't have to do any machining. An Sn3 axle u is long enough for trucks with inside bearings.

No, but MTB can make additional chassis if more people want it. Alco S2 would be another option.
SW8/SW1200 is (almost) a current TT model. The last ones were available from the manufacturer a month ago.

I have two SW's for sale if anyone is interested. Both have been test-run only on a 36" straight piece of test track. One is a Southern Pacific switcher in the "bloody nose" paint scheme. The other is "undecorated" and partially disassembled (the way it came in the box.) Also, the undecorated one is missing its cab roof. I guess I lost it somehow. You can send me an email regarding these locos if you wish. I simply want to stick with steam power. I am a reasonable guy--I think? :?

With copious apologies to Conductor--I shot my reply in the wrong category. I will be posting another in the "Buy Sell Trade" slot with photo of the two SW's. Also, re the missing cab on the undecorated unit, Inoticed that the unit has no truck frames! I can't believe that I lost or misplaced these items. Anyone out there purchase an "undecorated" unit and find that it did not include these items? I'd like to know.
