Well, if the mechanism is no challenge, then bring them on!

(I have no use for them, but I'm sure there are many out there that would like one!)

Small is a relative statement here! ANYTHING is bigger than some of the oddball stuff I've tried, but that doesn't mean it works right, either.

I have a LL SW torn apart as I speak, and drawings handy of an SW1. I'd like to look at that one myself. It impresses me that the radiator is almost right over the front edge of the truck tower, leaving no room for the LL nut to hold the frame together. But I thought the cab width was the same, and maybe even the wheelbase. Good question, anyway.

The cab is pretty much the same one as on the EMC40 with the arched windows, which is really kind of cool.

There was a good article in one of the N mags(i am not sure which) a year or so ago of a kitbash of an SW1 using a Con Cor Sw???? powered calf and a cab from a LL SW. it looked pretty nice.

That one was done with the old Atlas mech which is very unreliable. The CC/Kato mech is split frame design.

The LL mechinism could be made to work, but the CC would probably be a better choice due to the placment of the retaining nut on the LL unit. That being said, LL could design an SW1 by adding the nut to the fueltank area and putting a spacerbetween the frame halves over the trucks.

I am guessing someone has this engine in the works. The SW1, NW2, SW1500, S1/3, and S2/4 are obvious gold mines in the N scale market, as LL found out with their two SW series.


Goodbye and good luck.
