  • New EMD switchers


    Anyone spot those new EMD GP15D and GP20D switchers anywhere?

    I am waiting patiently for some pics to appear, and then a company to model them.

    Thanks.

    IMHO I'd be surprised if they sold all that well to the railroads. All the data I've seen indicates switchers have not sold very well over the last decade or so, as most railroads just use older road engines in their yards et al. Here in Edmonton, for example, the CP yard is patrolled by a pair of GP9's.

        These are actually built by Morrison-Knudsen (MPI Locomotives) using EMD parts and, in some cases, EMD locomotives (which they then customize) Some have Caterpillar built engines, some GM/EMD and some run on Liquefied Natural Gas! Anyway, here is a link to pictures of some of these locos including the GP15D and GP20D.

        Hope it helps some!

          Rush2ny,

          Yep. That link was just what I needed. Thanks so much.

          Still waiting on the confirmation from you, Jack. LOL!

          Now, I do not care who buys them or makes them....I WANT A COUPLE for my layout. Question is....does anyone make these yet? If not, any conversion kits for them?

          Thanks guys.

              I can't seem to find that pic again.. But I still looking. The reason why I was paying attention because it said they were on the BNSF. Dang gone it! I wished I could remember where i saw it.

                ...at the risk of starting another off-topic post.....



                Jack,

                do you remember how long ago it was? And....do you dump your cache (Netscape) or temp Internet files (MSIE) regularly?

                If not, the site is still in your history list. Lemme know what you use.

                    Jack,

                    Check your history. You can view both Netscape and MSIE history logs.

                    Later.

                      Here is the MK's "little brother" to the modern 15 and 20 switchers, the MK1200G in Santa Fe warbonnet blue and BNSF markings. They are LPG fueled and usually work on the Los Angeles Junction Railway, "as" (so I was told by Bill Edwards, the Asst. Gen. Mngr. of the LAJ), "the BNSF guys don't like 'em..."
