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. Also included are scenarios specifically for the North Jersey Coast Line route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).
