SD40-2F Kit 
The EMD SD40-2F is a 3,000 HP Locomotive built solely for the Canadian Pacific Railway.  Basically a SD40-2 in a full-width cowl body, a total of 25 units were built.  They were delivered in1988 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.  Equipped with Locotrol, they spent the early part of their carrers in western bulk train service until bumped to the general pool by AC4400’s in 1995.  As they were CP’s most modern 3000 HP units they found a new home out east in hauling CP’s hottest dedicated Expressway trains.  All 25 units remain in service as and can be found system wide.
