Marketed to railroads that needed a more powerful medium-size road engine, the GP40 packed an impressive 3000 horsepower under the hood, twice as much as the GP7. These locos now feature improved roof and side sill details, directional lighting with white LEDs, walkway safety treads, blackened wheels, ScaleSpeed(TM) motor, painted handrails, and factory-installed AccuMate(R) knuckle couplers.
The GP-40 was produced the Electro Motive Division in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the GP-40 was a 3000 horsepower locomotive best characterized by the three full size radiator fans on the rear of the roof.
The GP40-2 was the successor to the popular EMD GP-40. The GP-40-2 had mostly internal changes but several outside details varied as well. Such details include bolted down battery box covers and a roof that extends slightly beyond the rear of the cab.
