The Conrail Cyclopedia - Serving Conrail fans world-wide since 1998.

Conrail SW1200 In 1954 EMD introduced its successor to the SW900, the 1,200 horsepower SW1200. These two switchers were nearly identical. The only difference is that the SW1200 had five battery box louvers, while the SW900 had six. Plus the SW1200, unlike its predecessor, had Flexicoil trucks, MU capability, and an extended-range fuel tank. In 1976 Conrail inherited its fleet of SW1200's from the Reading Company--which ordered full length handrails along the long hood for its units--Erie Lackawanna, and Penn Central.

Comprehensive Roster
The roster below is comprehensive for these units between April 1976 and May 1999, and contains all predecessor units of the locomotive class that Conrail inherited as well as those Conrail purchased. If numbers are missing from the roster, Conrail intentionally left them open. It does not contain retirement dates and dispositions due to their complex nature.
