    The GMD SD40-2F is a unique locomotive, only 25 were ever built. All were built for Canadian Pacific, who received them units in 1988 & 1989 after GMD SD40-2 production had ended. They were numbered 9000 to 9024.

    These 25 locomotives are unique for a number of reasons beyond their limited numbers. They were the only cowl units ever purchased by Canadian Pacific, and were also the only new motive power to be delivered in the CP "Action Red" paint scheme.

    Canadian Pacific had wanted to order additional SD40-2's, but EMD had already ended their production. As a result, Canadian Pacific and GMD developed this locomotive. Unfortunately, being a relatively small production run and after the SD40-2's had ended production, EMD had to rely on outside sources for some of the parts. This resulted in many early problems with these locomotives, particular with the EMD 645 prime movers.

    Eventually these issues were addressed and the SD40-2F's became reliable locomotives. Though from a number of reports, they were never popular with crews. They were however, popular with CP fans, as they were so unique.

    They were initially used in British Columbia to haul coal unit trains to the Robert’s Bank coal port. They were replaced in this by newer GE units in 1995 and then were used interchangeably with SD40-2s across the Canadian Pacific network. CP 9000 & CP 9022 were repainted in the CP "Dual Flags" scheme during the CP Rail System era. Most of the other units have had only minor paint work or physical modifications.

    In 2012, Canadian Pacific removed a number of these locomotives from service for conversion as part of the larger SD40-2 to SD30C-ECO rebuild program. As of 2015, none remain in active service with Canadian Pacific, though several are stored in operating condition.
