The GP40TC (GP40H) Page
- Amtrak's GP40TC's aka
GP40H (TC=Toronto Commuter / H=Hed End Power), numbered 192 - 199, were purchased
from GO Transit in Toronto in 1988. Amtrak renumbered the GP40H's to 520-527
due to their new "Acela" P42 locomotives that will take over the 100 series
numbers. A GP40H is basically like a regular GP40-2, but longer since there's
a HEP (Head End Power) unit in the rear. Another very noticible characteristic
of these locomotives are their sheet metal plates on the front handrails which
say "Amtrak". The Wilmington, DE shops removed the front plates off of the 192,
193 and 199 when installing ditchlights. They saved the plate off of 192
for me. Each GP40H's paint is unique since there's small differences on each
unit. The GP40Hs will most likely live the rest of their Amtrak life as Maintenance
of Way (MOW) or yard switchers.
