Peoria Locomotive Works PL1500

Postby Roland1 » Fri Jun 30, 2006 11:50 am

Hello ,
for a new modeling project in 0 gauge I am looking for drawings and good pictures of the PLW PL1500/SC15-A3 locomotives. It is a CAT powered switcher based on a SW1200. Just 3 were built and they are now in service for the Tazewell & Peoria RR, former PPU. Any informations and non published pictures are welcome. Roofshots were perfet !

I have pix, and have run them, as well as the re-powered Geeps, too. I will post some pix, when I get my stuff, out here where I am living. Two of those switchers have the cab end as the front, and one was changed, to long hood forward, but the control stand was not moved to the opposite side. VERY confusing for all involved, while switching......... :( I did the "start-up", when RailAmerica took over operations, from the P&PU, and spent every day running those weird little engines. Will post pix, when I get them........... :-D
