Built by the American Locomotive Company (Alco) this [UNDECORATED MODEL] of the low-hood S-2 was introduced in 1940 to replace Alco’s earlier high-hood switchers. The 1000 horsepower S-2 was a turbocharged version of the S-1. There were 1,502 S-2s sold to North American Railroads. The versatility of the S-2s was evidenced by their service on class 1 shortline and industrial railroads. This model is back in service, with new tooling, as well as a sound-equipped for modeler enjoyment.
