N EMD F40PH Caltrain #903 w/ DCC Installed


The EMD F40PH has had a long history throughout the 70ís and 80ís as a short range passenger locomotive. Being put into service originally on Amtrak, many local passenger services, such as Caltrain, ordered these locomotives for commuter operations. As of 2012, Caltrain has a fleet of more than 20 F40PH variants which operate Bi-level cars around San Francisco and Santa Clara on a daily basis.

    Model features:
  • Equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers.
  • directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted number boards.
  • Equipped with shock absorber construction for smooth and prototypical motion on the track.
  • 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 have retooled bodies with over-cab A/C units and illuminated ditch lights.

This Kobo DCC locomotive has been rigorously tested for performance and has a Train Control Systems K0D8-C DCC board installed to be truly ready-to-run on DCC. As all Kobo DCC units are built to order, please allow for additional time (commonly around one week) when purchasing.
