Bulletin: *MP40PH-3C*


The MPXpress line of locomotives were the first production passenger locomotives to meet EPA Tier 1 and Tier 2 emissions regulations, as well as FRA safety regulations regarding crashworthiness and fire safety. Numerous public transit agencies in Canada and the United States have ordered MPXpress locomotives for their commuter rail services. To date only GO Transit have MP40PH-3C in Service but Sounder Commutr Rail in Seattle does have an order pending for 3 Units.

The prime mover used in the MP40PH-3C is a EMD 16-710GB. The Prototype has a seperate HEP unit for providing Power to the Passengers. This sound is also available in the in this file as a user dependant function that can turned on and off as needed. (Usually if 2 engines are used only the engine closest to the cars will have the HEP unit running)

These Locomotives are used Daily in "Push-Pull" service and are set up to do so as default in this decoder as well. Operating Front and rear red lights and Headlight/Ditchlights are set accordingly as default.
