my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Texas and New Orleans SW 9
5 units delivered
The Texas & New Orleans (T&NO or TNO) was a subsidiary of SP, and was the amalgamation of 12 SP owned lines in Texas and Louisiana, due at the time to Texas Corporate Law which stated that all companies operating Texas had to maintain Offices in Texas. It existed until 1961 when the laws changed, and was fully absorbed by SP.
T&NO units were lettered Southern Pacific, and were sublettered (near the road number), either T&NO or TNO. All units were numbered under 1000, to avoid conflicts with SP units, and rarely left T&NO lines until after the 'merger'.
TNO SW9's came equipped with MU capability.
The SW9 is another locomotive model that was not rostered by the parent company SP.
T&NO SW9's were considered as road units, so they were delivered with the road-switcher Tiger-Stripe paint with aluminum ends.
Both TNO and SSW units were later 'rebuilt' into SW1200E's.
