Prototype Information
First produced in 1966, the 3000-horsepower EMD SD-40 was one of the most popular locomotives ever produced by EMD.
Although designated as a "Special Duty (SD) locomotive, this versatile engine eventually saw all types of duty for a large number of railroads..
What this locomotive lacked in power, she more than made up for with her dependability in service--which explains why the SD40's were so popular with the prototype..
More than 1200 of these units were produced by EMD for railroads throughout North America.
Many SD40 units are still in active service today, either with the original purchaser or a second hand user.

Model Features :
While this will be the third production of SD40's by Kato (previously offered in October 1990 and May 1994), these models will be updated to include the following features:
Bright-white™ LED headlight.
Printed numberboards.
MU hose detail.
Magnetic knuckle couplers.
DCC Friendly--designed for simple drop-in installation of digital decoders..
All new truck sideframes molded with high-mount or low-mount brake cylinders as appropriate for the prototype.
All models will be equipped with Kato's new profile blackened metal wheels (similar to those used on the smooth-running P42's).
All models are equipped with the powerful KATO five-pole motor with dual brass flywheels.
