ViaRail's F40PH-2 (F40PH-3 for modified engines) 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 while 6347 to 6458 is 90 mph. They carry CN classifications GPA-30a (6400-19), GPA-30b (6420-29) and GPA-30c (6430-58). Modified locos are all classified GPA-30H.
