The Bullet Proof Switcher, referred to as the "BPS", is a Copyright protected, propietary design by Precision Railroad Products. It is modeled after an EMD road switcher, to give it a streamlined and attractive look.
Our goal with the BPS was to make a HIGH quality locomotive that ANYONE could afford, and EVERYONE would want to own. Every part of this engine shows attention to deails and a superior design.
The BPS was first designed on a computer in 3D, using AUTO-CAD and SOLIDWORKS design software. All of the metal pars are cut with CNC Machinery. The chassis deck, ends, and sides are Waterjet cut from 1/2 inch P&O steel. Then its body is 100% laser cut out of 12 gauge cold rolled steel. This higher level of quality in the steel is needed due to the CNC bending and rolling that is done to make these bodies. There are NO body fillers, BONDO or Fiberglass used ANYWHERE!
These 100% STEEL locomotives can be completely powder-coated.
The use of HEAVY GAUGE steel adds weight for tractive effort and looks GREAT!
