A Norfolk & Ohio SW-1

In the photo in this prior post you can see a view of an EMD diesel switcher in action on the great Norfolk & Ohio layout of Carl Appel. In this post I describe the Super Scale SW-1. Today, a treat; Dick Gresham owns a Norfolk & Ohio SW-1, an eBay purchase from a few years back and perhaps the very model in the photo published in Model Railroader in 1958. It is clearly a Super Scale SW-1 with added details including a crew and also a can motor drive. The photos largely speak for themselves and are arranged below. Thanks again to Dick G. for sharing these photos, and click on any photo for a larger view.
