Product Description

This is a replacement shell for modeling an Electro-Motive Division (EMD) F40C in HO scale (1:87).

Ordered in two batches in 1974, a total of 15 were built exclusively for commuter service along the former Milwaukee Road routes out of Chicago. These orders were paid for by the Northwest Suburban Mass Transit District, a publicly funded agency. The F40C served commuters in Northwest Chicagoland for over 30 years. Most of the fleet was retired, sold, and presumably scrapped in 2004 with the arrival of the MP36PH-3s locomotives from MPI. Two units, 611 and 614, remain and face an uncertain future.

This model represents a "modernized" F40C as they appeared in Metra service towards the end of their career. An earlier, "as-built" version for Milwaukee Road / Northwest Suburban Mass Transit District service is available here.

This model is designed to fit a Bachmann HO scale SD40-2 mechanism (Bachmann item numbers 67014 through 67025).
