The GMD SD40-2F was a 3,000 horsepower (2,200 kW) C-C diesel locomotive built by General Motors Diesel. It was fundamentally an SD40-2 in a cowl unit full-width body. A total of 25 units were built solely for the Canadian Pacific Railway. They were delivered in 1988 and 1989, after the end of production for the regular SD40-2. The engines were CP’s only cowl units, and have been nicknamed “red barns” by railfans.
The locomotives are numbered 9000-9024. These were the only new locomotives to be delivered to the CPR in the “Action Red” paint scheme, a variation upon the “Multimark” paint scheme lacking the black-and-white “Pac-Man” emblem. Two engines, numbers 9000 and 9022, have been repainted in the “Dual Flags” paint scheme. They were delivered without the porthole in the nose door; this was retrofitted to most units in the early 1990s.
