The Great Northern Railroad's flagship passenger train was named the Empire Builder in honor of the railroad's founder, James J. So far so good but I didn't realize that Bachmann EZ-Track comes with black and gray bases and this set has the black. I am happy with the product, unhappy with the slow shipping.On my order I specified that I needed the train set one week from the date of order. DCC ON BOARD locomotives feature dual-mode digital command control decoders enabling operation with a standard DC analog power pack or any NMRA-compliant Digital Command Control system for speed, direction, and lighting control.
The EMD SW1500 was a 1,500 hp diesel locomotive intended for switching service and built by General Motors' Electro-Motive Division between June 1966 and January 1974. Hill became known as the Empire Builder after reorganizing several failing railroads into the Great Northern Railway and extending the line to the Pacific Northwest in the late 19th Century.


If you ask for comments on the order form, someone should actually READ them and contact the customer if there might be an issue. It was closely related to the less powerful EMD SW1000 model, forming a line of switchers powered by the new EMD 645 engine.
Eastern railroads favored a "Single Headlight" version of the F3, while Western railroads favored a "Dual Headlight" version.F3 locomotives were used in both freight and passenger service. After World War II, the Empire Builder was equipped with a full length "Great Dome" passenger car to optimize the views of the passing Cascade Mountains and the Rocky Moutain landscapes of Montana's Glacier National park.Due to USPS size restrictions, we are not able to ship this set via USPS Priority Mail International. The SW1500 replaced the SW1200 in the EMD product line, and was in turn replaced by the MP15DC.The SW1500 was a substantially bulkier locomotive than the SW1200, with a much bulkier frame, larger cab and bigger hood. For passenger service, it was necessary for the locomotives to have a Steam Generator to provide heat and electricity in the passenger cars.


In later years, many F3 locomotives originally intended for passenger services were downgraded to freight duty. While the SW1500 came as standard with AAR switcher trucks, the majority of them were delivered with the optional Flexicoil trucks which permitted speeds up to 60 mph.
The SW1500 was, in fact, often operated as a road-switcher for branchline service, and continues in this role today.
