VIA Rebuilt F40PH-2D #6248-HO Scale-by Rapido

VIA Rebuilt F40PH-2D #6248-HO Scale-by Rapido
Click Here for Larger Image
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.

Some railfan somewhere decided to call the rebuilt locomotives F40PH-3, and other railfans followed suit. It is a completely made-up name, so that sentence is the last time you’ll see Rapido use it. The correct name for the locomotive is GPA-30H. General Motors Passenger A unit, 3000 HP, class H. But nobody would know what we’re talking about if we called it that so we’re referring to this locomotive simply as the Rebuilt F40PH-2D.

Our Rebuilt F40PH-2D features:

  • All of the amazing detail found on our original F40PH-2D release.
  • Accurate HEP generator details, including radiator fans, rads and cabling visible through the grilles
  • All-new body with different spotting details
  • Operating ditch lights and emergency light
  • Accurate sounds recorded from a rebuilt F40PH-2D
  • Emergency horn and two types of VIA E-Bell recordings
