N EMD SDP40F Type I, Amtrak Phase II Paint #535


The EMD SDP40F was Amtrak®'s first, official, built to order locomotive after previously operating using second hand equipment, such as E8's, F7's and even GG1's. Based on the framework of the SD40-2, the SDP40F was geared for speed, with a top operational velocity of 100 mph and a pair of steam generators to supply heat and hot water for the passenger trains it would pull. The Phase II paint scheme was introduced in 1977, and eschewed the “arrow” logo for the bold red, white and blue stripes that would become synonymous with Amtrak, and Locomotives were painted to match the striping of the cars they pulled.
