CW for Cotton Wood, 2004 indicates the year we purchased this unit used from a gentleman in Alberta. Built new by Rail Systems Company as model SW-7. With very little time on the motor when we acquired this locomotive it has been very reliable.
Most popular in our park as a work train engine. The CW 2004 is very quick and responsive to the controls. Simple to start and operate this locomotive is also used for training new volunteers. Not equiped with a sound card or an air brake system. The only controls are the ignition key, hydraulic lever and an automotive type horn button. Only method to stop is to gently reverse the hydraulic control lever.
- 16 Hp twin Briggs
