Kato N SDP40F PH AMTrak #504 Loco
Kato N Scale EMD SDP40F Type I, Amtrak Phase I Paint #504
The EMD SDP40F was AmtrakÂ®s first, official, built to order locomotive after previously operating using second hand equipment, such as E8s, F7s and even GG1s. 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 or Southwest Limited in its combined state). The Bloody nose Phase I paint scheme adorned the first batch of these locomotives when they were built in 1973, one year after Amtrak began adopting its first official livery.
