These custom runs of F40PH locomotives will be repainted and re-detailed from existing VRE units with some minor physical modifications to make them as close as possible to their road’s equipment. They feature enhanced paint details such as decorated plows (as appropriate), modified horn placement, painted railings and more!

This locomotive will be offered as part of the Kato USA Kobo Custom Paint line, hand-painted and decorated by a master modeler in Japan. While it will not be a “limited” run, all orders will be processed in a made-to-order fashion and will available on a first come, first served basis until the base models run out. Due to the hand-made nature of this item, some minor blemishes and differences may be present from model to model – Kato USA cannot take returns on items unless they possess major paint or mechanical issues.

Prototype Information:

The EMD F40PH is synonymous with the Amtrak era of American passenger trains. 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.
  • Locomotives have a powerful five pole motor with all wheel electrical pickup and blackened wheels.
  • 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 and Digitrax DN163K0D.
