By 1954, railroads were buying diesels as fast as EMD could build them, and customer demand for more powerful units carried over into the switcher market as well. With the introduction of the new 567C prime mover that year, EMD rolled out new 900- (SW9) and 1200-horsepower (SW1200) models, which shared the same basic body with minor variations. SW1200s were produced through 1966, when earlier GPs began taking over yard chores, but these later SW models have lead long lives, with many still serving shortline and industrial roads long after "retirement" by the original owners.
