The ALW 78 tonner series was produced from 1925 to 1943 by the Apogee Locomotive Works as a versatile electric locomotive for Interurbans, mining companies, and electrified shortlines. The 78-ton series was available in a Boxcab design and a Steeplecab design. Units often were built with specifications provided by the road purchasing the locomotives, these alternate designs often included unique pilots, shorter 'Transit' cabs for underground & elevated rails, and even A/B sets.


The ALW 78 Tonner is the first ALW kit designed to fit multiple chassis with the use of sub-frames.
