GO Transit GP40-2(W) 710

GO Transit 700-710 are GMDD GP40-2(W)'s. They were built in three orders, delivered in 1973, 1974 and 1975. They were retired and sold in 1991, with 10 of them being sold to CN and the other sold to Tri-Rail in Florida. F59PH 548-561 were purchased to replace them.

700-706 were built as units 9808-9814, but renumbered 700-706 in late 1975. 707-710 were delivered as those numbers.

These were the first units built and delivered without a HEP engine and generator, and thus could not be used by themselves to power a train. Thus, they had to be paired with either another locomotive that did provide HEP, or with one of the 900-series Auxiliary Power/Control Units (APCU) or the 800-series Auxiliary Power Units (APU). These units were also equipped with pass-through HEP cables, so that they could be coupled between an APCU and the rest of the train.

All units were displaced by GO's then-new F59PH units and sold to Canadian National in 1991, with the exception of 703 sold to Tri-Rail. Prior, they were frequently leased to Canadian Pacific for pulling freight trains, often in matching GO sets or mixed with other CP units.
