Hey Gang,

I just sold my D&RGW # 50 knock off and I'm looking to replace it. Probably something gas or electric in the form of an SW1 or SW 1500 series or maybe even a small 2 axle switcher/box cab. Obviously majority of those are electric and the gas series in the SW 1500 have the Briggs and Stratton V twin engine. Good rig, but I prefer the Honda.

I have been looking around the sites and does anyone make the SW 1500 or something similar using the 5.5 hp Honda engine anymore? Anyone know of one for sale used?

I know we've "talked" before, are you looking for something turn key, or more like a rolling model you could add drivetrain to yourself?

The 5.5/6.6 engine barely fits in the cab of one of these.
Here is a used one for sale: ... /index.htm
