EMD 1200SW Locomotive

I finally finished my locomotive designed for pulling a large number of rolling stock at a show. The locomotive is loosely based on the EMD SW1200 locomotive, utilizing four LEGO® 9V PF train motors (88002) and four sets of Alain le Sage’s custom metal wheels in the centre locomotive to obtain power from the track. A DigiTrax DH123 decoder chip was utilized to ensure that sufficient amperage was available to the four motors; the 1.5 Amp chip would allow 375mA for each motor which is typically sufficient and consistent with Philo’s testing. Looking forward to testing this locomotive at Heritage Park Railway Days the last week in September.
