N EMD SDP40F Type I, Amtrak Phase I Paint #508 w/ DCC

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, such as the ex-Santa Fe "El Capitan" and "Super Chief" (renamed the "Southwest Chief" or "Southwest Limited" in its combined state). The "Bloody nose" Phase I paint scheme adorned the first batch of these locomotives when they were built in 1973, one year after Amtrak began adopting its first official livery.

    Model Features:
  • Type I Car body details represent the prototypical appearance of these units "as built".
  • Equipped with body mounted Kato magnetic knuckle couplers.
  • Powerful five pole motor with all wheel electrical pickup and blackened wheels.
  • Directional Golden white LED headlights and illuminated pre-printed numberboards.

This set will come with pre-installed Digitrax DCC in both engines to be fully ready-to-run on a DCC layout!

Please allow for 3-5 business days upon placing your order to have DCC installed, as these sets are built-to-order. Your order will not be charged until your set is built and ready to ship to you.
