|CP 1400 Double|
|Award From||Wood High Roller||Limit|
| CP Class 1400 is a series of diesel-electric locomotives built for the Portuguese Railways between 1967 and 1969. They were ordered primarily to replace steam locomotives still in use in Portugal. Designed and engineered by English Electric, they are closely modelled mechanically on the British Rail Class 20 locomotives but using a more powerful engine. The first ten were built in England at the Vulcan Foundry in Newton-le-Willows, but the remaining locomotives were assembled in Portugal by Sorefame. During the early years of 21st century some have been sold for further service in Argentina, but as of 2012 many remain in service with CP.|
