Although it has been retired from Amtrak service, it operated for over 20 years and today it continues to be the motive power for commuter railroads such as VRE, MBTA, Caltrain, Metrolink, and Metra and more all over the United States. Over 400 F40PH locomotives have been manufactured by EMD in various configurations. To support passenger service, the F40PH is equipped with a secondary electrical generator referred to as the head end generator (or HEP, for Head End Power). The need for constant constant frequency power means that these HEP units are constantly running at 900rpm, resulting in the nickname "Screamers" for the units due to the sound. Model Features: All locomotives are equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers.Locomotives feature directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted number boards. Locomotives are equipped with shock absorber construction for smooth and prototypical motion on the track. Additional alternate snow plow piece included for tight radius operation. New Commuter-version F40PH locomotives and Amtrak Phase III ditch light versions have retooled bodies with over-cab A/C units and illuminated ditch lights. Chicago Metra version F40PH locomotives have directional head and tail lights on the front of the locomotive for push-pull operation. Drop in DCC compatible with the Train Control Systems K0D8-C (Amtrak) and Train Control Systems K5D7 (Metra).
