Ready to fall in love with an F40? Despite sidelining the fan favorite BN E9s, these F40PHM-2s have created a similar iconic look for themselves hauling commuters in the Windy City for the past 30 years. Nicknamed “Winnebagos” for their similar appearance to the RV, these were the last 30 F40PHs that Metra ordered new, in 1991. Towards the end of 2016, the F40PHM-2s were sent out to Progress Rail for rebuilding and application of the new faded scheme that was already applied to the MP36 and 100 series F40PHs. Of the 30 locos, only one has been retired account of a wreck off-line.
The F40PHM-2s were delivered with the standard Metra/RTA features: Nathan P5a horn, dual Gyralite with clear and red targets, ditch lights, dual rooftop air conditioners, Stratolites and pilot plows. The locos that returned from rebuild featured a redesigned cab door window, front snowplow, single rooftop APU strobe, PTC antenna arrays and the new faded scheme. Rapido aims to capture the look and sound of this iconic locomotive that has brought Chicagoans to and from work for the last 30 years! ...wait! We can’t forget 211! One F40PHM-2 received a special CB&Q-inspired heritage scheme in 2019, which we are proud to have on the first run!
