SW1200RS LOCOMOTIVES

Rapido Trains Inc. is delighted to announce the latest museum-quality model in its True North line of iconic Canadian locomotives. The most requested locomotive in Rapido’s history, the ubiquitous SW1200RS has been a mainstay of freight railroading in Canada since 1955. Equally at home in the yard or on the mainline, the GMDD (General Motors Diesel Division) SW1200RS operated from coast to coast, and many are still in service today for short lines in Canada and the United States.

You can see the obvious differences between the CN and CP SW1200RS at the rear.

Canadian National and Canadian Pacific each rostered large fleets of the SW1200RS. While internally identical, the locomotives had numerous spotting differences, such as the exhaust stacks, cab number boards, battery boxes, fuel tanks, classification (marker) lights and stanchions. Rapido has tooled all of the major spotting differences between the two versions, as well as numerous variations between eras. No expense has been spared to bring you as accurate a model as we can, whether you model CN or CP.

Dan Garcia checks to see which is taller, him or the stack.

The SW1200RS has been under development for over a year and is a key locomotive required for Rapido President Jason Shron’s Kingston Sub layout. We’d particularly like to extend a huge thank you to the Ontario Southland Railway for the incredible level of access they gave us to make extensive field measurements and video their fleet of locomotives in action. More of the latter can be found in a future video on this exciting project.
