F40PH-2D

Prototype Information
VIA’s F40PH-2D has been the face of passenger train travel in Canada since the 1980s and while there have been a number of inaccurate F40 models painted in VIA colours, there has never been an accurate N scale model of this 3000-horsepower Canadian workhorse. Until now.

The F40PH-2D was built in London, Ontario between 1986 and 1989. It features a desktop control stand (hence the “D” in the designation); a unique fuel tank and underframe arrangement; a unique carbody design with custom panel and door locations; and numerous other Canadian-only details.

  • Scaled from original blueprints and field measurements

  • Accurate F40PH-2D sounds on sound-equipped models

Rebuilt F40PH-2D
Prototype Information
In 2010 VIA Rail Canada contracted CAD Railway Industries in Lachine, Quebec, to rebuild its F40 locomotive fleet. This involved removal of the HEP (Head End Power) alternator and installation of a separate HEP generator in the rear of the locomotive. At the same time the locomotive was given VIA’s green, grey and yellow Renaissance paint scheme first seen on the P42DC locomotives in 2001. By the end of 2012 all 52 F40PH-2D locomotives had been rebuilt.

Rapido Trains Inc. is delighted to introduce the only N scale model ever produced of this uniquely Canadian passenger workhorse.

In 2013 the Government of Canada issued a new polymer $10 banknote featuring The Canadian au verso (on the back). The locomotive was number 6403 and the VIA logo was replaced by the Canada wordmark. We’re offering a special limited run of the $10 bill version of 6403, complete with the Canada wordmark. As an added bonus, 25 of the locomotives will have $10 bill hidden in the box.
