| An EMD SDP40 is a 6-axle passenger diesel locomotive built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division between 1966 and 1970. Like its predecessors, the SDP40 is essentially a high-horsepower freight locomotive with additional equipment for passenger train service. In 1966, EMD updated their locomotive catalog with entirely new models, all powered by the new 645 diesel engine. All shared standardized components, including the frame, cab, generator, trucks, traction motors, and air brakes. Although few were produced, they enjoyed long service lives.|
