US Air Force RR Equipment

These three SW-8 locomotives, #'s 2007, 2021 and 2000 are bonafide war veterans. They were built in 1951 for the US Army and were part of a build of 41 locomotives that were shipped to Korea.

After the Korean truce was signed in 1953, these three locomotives were sent to Cape Canaveral where they formed the basis of the Titan Launch Railroad. Capable of speeds in excess of 65 mph, they can also move separately or in unison, in increments of 1/64 of an inch, allowing them to move the huge Titans on their mobile launch platforms gently into position out at the launch pad.

#'s 2000 and 2007 were retired in 2006 and sent to Hill AFB in Utah for refurbishment. #2021 was slated for display at the Air Force Space & Missile Museum at the Cape.
