PROTOTYPE SPECIFIC INFORMATION


By the early 1970s, many first generation diesels were reaching the end of their
service lives. The most common replacement locomotives became the GP40-2. EMD
began production of the 16-cylinder, turbocharged, 3000 horsepower engine in
1972. These locomotive were developed for service where higher horsepower and
faster service were preferable. A major feature for the GP40-2 was the
introduction of the dash 2 modular electrical cabinet. For more than 40 years,
the GP40-2 has worked main line freights, locals, switching jobs, yard service,
and helper service. Many remain in service today.
