## About This Content
The Electro-Motive GP40, introduced in 1965, has proven to be one of North
America’s most versatile and successful locomotives, with more than 1,200
units constructed by 1972.
The GP40 was designed to haul tonnage, and with four axles and a robust 3,000
horsepower, the locomotive was ideally suited for intermodal and fast freight
duty, but a hallmark of EMD’s line of ‘Geeps’ had always been versatility, and
the GP40 proved no exception.
As either custom-built by EMD or re-manufactured, GP40s have served
extensively in the United States and Canada as power for commuter trains.
One of the New York metropolitan area’s commuter goliaths, NJ Transit,
inherited a fleet of 13 EMD-built GP40P diesels from the Central Railroad of
New Jersey and then expanded that roster to 39 units with GP40s rebuilt for
commuter service by Morrison-Knudsen and Conrail’s Altoona Shops.
Equipped with head-end power (HEP) to supply electricity to the commuter
consists they haul and upgraded with EMD “Dash 2” technology, NJT’s GP40s
carry GP40PH-2 and GP40PH-2B designations.
NJT’s most recent and most advanced versions – the GP40PH-2B – was re-
manufactured by Conrail in 1993 to 1994 and many of the units remain in active
service today on NJT’s busier routes, such as the North Jersey Coast Line.
The GP40PH-2B for Train Simulator is available in classic NJT livery and
includes Comet IV commuter coaches and driveable Comet V Cab Car.
The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive
the NJT GP40PH-2B on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such
as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for
the North Jersey Coast Line route (available separately and required to play
