Item DescriptionThe EMD NW2 is a 1,000 horsepower yard switcher, its distinctive twin-stack profile and short radiator creating a distinctive silhouette. Perhaps ironic, considering its 1000 horsepower engine, the N in NW2 stood for nine hundred horsepower, with the W designating that it was a welded frame locomotive, instead of a cast frame. Burlington Northern's NW2 fleet was carried over from equipment originally purchased by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, Great Northern, Northern Pacific and the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railways, with numbers' 500-545, specifically, being ex-CB&Q locomotives.
