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" in its combined state). A number of SDP40F's were traded over to the Santa Fe Railway in 1984 where they were modified and repainted into the distinctive warbonnet scheme and maintained in service for nearly 15 years.Type I Car body details represent the prototypical appearance of these units "as built" - No front porch railings, Steam Generators, Nose headlights, and forward mounted 4-Chime air horns. Amtrak Phase I and Phase II paint locos are a perfect match for the Amtrak El Capitan 10-Car Set, Amtrak Southwest Limited 8-Car Set or Phase I Amfleet I Cars. All locomotives will be equipped with body mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers. Locomotives feature directional Golden White LED headlights and illuminated preprinted numberboards.
