In the early 1970’s Amtrak needed new motive power to replace the rapidly aging locomotive fleet that they inherited. They approached EMD about
creating a new locomotive to be used on most of the Amtrak routes around the country. The result was the 3,000 horsepower, steam generator
equipped SDP40F. While initially a successful unit, a series of derailments soon led several of Amtrak’s host railroads to claim that these locomotives
were faulty, banning them from use on their respective lines. Although this led to their early retirement, many of the units made it into Amtrak’s Phase 2
paint scheme which we are featuring in this release.
