## About This Content
Amtrak’s Electro-Motive SDP40F – a memorable, historic, yet star-crossed
diesel locomotive of the 1970s and early 1980s – now comes to Train Simulator!
On May 1, 1971, Amtrak took over most passenger-train operations in the United
States and faced an immediate need for diesel motive power. Amtrak contracted
with Electro-Motive for a new model – to be designated SDP40F – and soon
ordered 150 of the husky diesels.
The SDP40F utilized many of the components of EMD’s successful freight-service
SD40-2. Like the SD40-2, the SDP40F was rated at 3,000 horsepower and powered
by an EMD 645-series, turbocharged, two-cycle V-16 power plant. The big six-
axle passenger diesel was wrapped in EMD’s distinctive “cowl” carbody and,
with steam generator and water tank, weighed in at nearly 400,000 pounds.
Amtrak’s 150 SDP40Fs (Amtrak 500-649) rolled out of EMD’s plant between June
1973 and August 1974, but the tenure of the big diesel was tarnished by
problems including derailments at speed and Amtrak soon chose to build its
diesel fleet of the future around the more versatile and nimble EMD F40PH.
Amtrak would retire its last SDP40Fs in the early 1980s, but while the service
careers of the SDP40Fs on Amtrak were relatively short, the big diesel
nonetheless served a historic role for the passenger carrier and endured long
enough to wear three Amtrak liveries (Phase I, II, and III), each of which are
included in this DLC. As an extraordinary bonus, the Amtrak SDP40F pack,
masterfully created by DTM, also include a complete set of Amtrak’s ex-Santa
Fe high-level cars as made famous in Santa Fe service on the El Capitan/Super
Chief and Texas Chief, and which served Amtrak for decades. Four scenarios for
the Donner Pass Southern Pacific route (route available separately) are
featured in the pack.
