The RSD-15 was powered by an Alco 251 16-cylinder V-type engine. The locomotive rode on 3-axle trucks with all axles powered by GE model 752 traction motors. The trucks have asymmetrical axle spacing because of the position of the traction motors. The six-motor design allowed for higher tractive effort at lower speeds than a similar four-motor design.
The RSD-15's could be ordered with either a high or low short hood, and the low hood versions quickly earned the nickname "alligators" due to their unusually long noses. In 2022, we are offering models of the RSD-15's in N scale with DCC & Sound for the first time. We are offering models of RSD-15's from 9 railroads in 10 distinct paint schemes. All road numbers and paint schemes are prototypically accurate. We are also building three models that were very similar in real life - two C&O RSD-7's and a CP RSD-17.
The models will be BLI RSD-15 models with the C&O and CP paint schemes applied. There wasn't a lot of detail variation among the RSD-15's, and we are making three distinct models - a standard low-hood model, a standard high-hood model, and a PRR-type high hood model with different locations for the bell and horns. Independently controllable lights in each RSD-15 model: Headlight Rear Light Cab Light Front & Rear Numberboards.
