Created in 1967, The Government of Ontario Transit system, known today as GO Transit, has served the southern region of Ontario, Canada, with a variety of passenger equipment. To supplement the 8 GP40TC locomotives purchased in 1966, GO Transit purchased 11 GP40-2W locomotives from GMDD in 1973 & 1975. The engines feature distinctive logo plates on the front and sides, as well as head-end power connections front and rear. The prototypes for our model are modernized units that were operating in the 1980’s, equipped with ditch lights and having relocated horns. These engines are a perfect match for our Bombardier Bi-Level commuter cars in the original GO Transit paint scheme. Since they were not equipped to supply head-end power, they were often run with converted F7 A & B units, which were rebuilt to act as HEP cars.
