Product Information

EMD built the unit in May 1969 as TP&W 1000. Santa Fe acquired it on Jan. 1, 1984 when it absorbed the TP&W and the locomotive was renumbered to ATSF 3461. In August 1984 it was rebuilt, repainted, renumbered to 2964 and designated a GP35u despite retaining its GP40 carbody. On Jan. 28, 1988 it was wrecked at Pico Rivera CA and was scrapped.

This detailed HO Scale Atlas Master Gold EMD GP40 is based on the 3,000-horsepower road switchers introduced in 1966. The line of locomotives were powered by the 16-cylinder 645-series prime mover. A total of 1,145 units were produced between 1966 and 1972. These turbocharged 3,000hp locomotives were used primarily in road freight service. The GP40 was a versatile locomotive that could be found across the US hauling drag freights over mountain passes and leading high-speed intermodal trains across flat terrain. Three rooftop radiator fans at the rear of the long hood differentiate a GP40 from its lower horsepower counterpart, the GP38, which has two fans. The Atlas EMD GP40 comes equipped with a dual-mode ESU LokSound Select sound and DCC dual-mode decoder for operation on DCC and DC layouts, and features a five-pole skewed-armature motor with dual flywheels, directional LED lighting and AccuMate(R) magnetic knuckle couplers. The EMD GP40 features accurate decoration, roadname-appropriate details and has plenty of applied details. Note that although the dual-mode decoders will operate on DCC and DC layouts, DC and DCC units will not operate together in a consist. The EMD GP40 is one of many Atlas HO Scale locomotives.
