Chesapeake & Ohio EMD SD40

Description
Features and Information

  • Introduced: 1966
  • Production ends: 1972
  • Top Speed: 134 Kph (83 Mph)
  • Tractive Effort: 410 kN

Two paint schemes are included:
  • Chesapeake & Ohio Simplified Blue (1966 - 1972)
  • Chesapeake & Ohio Simplified Blue w/ Yellow Nose (1966 - 1972)

The EMD SD40 was the less-popular earlier iteration of the SD40-2, produced from 1966 to 1972. They were some of the last locomotives purchased by the C&O before becoming part of Chessie System, eventually acquiring a total of 63. For about a decade prior to the merger, Chesapeake & Ohio had already gained financial control of the Baltimore & Ohio Railway. During this time, the two railways painted their locomotives in a matching paint scheme that was significantly simplified compared to their earlier diesel schemes. These locomotives would have gone on to Chessie System and even CSX before being retired. A surviving example was repainted into C&O colours and delivered to the Chesapeake & Ohio Historical Society in early 2019.

This mod includes asset versions of each locomotive, as well as multiple unit versions for double-headers.
