Description

PRE-INSTALLED WITH TCS DCC

The EMD F40PH is synonymous with the Amtrak era of American passenger trains. Although it has been retired from Amtrak service, it operated for over 20 years and today it continues to be the motive power for commuter railroads such as VRE, MBTA, Caltrain, Metrolink, and Metra) and more all over the United States. Over 400 F40PH locomotives have been manufactured by EMD in various configurations.

To support passenger service, the F40PH is equipped with a secondary electrical generator referred to as the head end generator (or HEP, for Head End Power). The need for constant constant frequency power means that these HEP units are constantly running at 900rpm, resulting in the nickname "Screamers" for the units due to the sound.

Model Features:
All locomotives are equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers
Locomotives feature directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted number boards
Locomotives are equipped with shock absorber construction for smooth and prototypical motion on the track
Locomotives have a powerful five pole motor with all wheel electrical pickup and blackened wheels
Additional alternate snow plow piece included for tight radius operation
New Commuter-version F40PH locomotives and Amtrak Phase III ditch light versions have retooled bodies with over-cab A/C units and illuminated ditch lights
Chicago Metra version F40PH locomotives have directional head and tail lights on the front of the locomotive for push-pull operation
