EMD SDP40F Type I
After serving Amtrak, many of the venerable SDP40F diesels made their way into freight service for the Santa Fe where they continuned plying the rails for almost 15 additional years before their eventual retirement.
Coming along with their repurposing in freight service, these units were modified with a number of changes from their original Amtrak days -- the entire front porch area was gated in with safety railings, while two notches were introduced on the nose to allow more easy access to the front deck from the steps on the nose for maintenance purposes.
Kato will produce two different variations of the late-appearance freight SDP40F - the Santa Fe and the Maersk (BNSF) types. Each one carrying prototype-specific detailing that represents the individual unit styles.
LokSound versions are expected in late December. Please reserve now -- your shopping cart will show a free zero deposit reservation -- your card is not charged until the time of actual shipment when a $7 Prioirty Mail shipping/handling charge will apply.

Kato is your source for Amtrak in N scale..
  • The first locomotive built specifically for Amtrak service.
  • Like the prototype, the SDP40F is based off of the Kato smooth rulnlning SD40-2 Drive, making it a proven and reliable mechanical design that will be easily upgradable with a decoder for DCC operation.
  • Coming in both the classic Phase I and Phase II paint schemes -- a perfect pairing for Amtrak "El Capitan" Car set currently available from Brooklyn Locomotive Works. See below.
  • Now you can accurately model 70's and 80's early Amtrak trains. Just hook up with your existing cars. And keep an eye open for future releases of more early Amtrak rolling stock.
