Via Rail's F40PH-2 locomotives were built by General Motors Diesel in London, Ontario in 3 batches between November 1986 & July 1989. There are Bo-Bo diesel electrics rated at 3000 hp although the drain caused by the passenger car needs can reduce it to 2300 hp. Top speed on locomotives 6400 to 6436 is 95 mph.
6427 is a 1987 built F40PH-2 ( passenger version of the GP40-2) rated at 3000 hp riding on 4 wheel trucks. It was built by GMD London (serial A4702)..
