Description

In close consultation with Canadian GO Transit, GMD developed the F59PH. Equipped with a turbocharged 12-cylinder two-stroke diesel prime mover (12-710G3A), a full-width North American comfort cab, with HEP provided by a smaller 600hp GM 8-cylinder diesel. In 1994, the final four units were delivered to GO, but were very quickly sold to Dallas’ Trinity Railway Express by the cash-strapped Ontario government. Today, these beautiful red, white and blue with a solid star scheme diesel locomotives transport commuters between the former historic Texas & Pacific Railroad Station in downtown Fort Worth Texas to downtown Dallas historic Union Station. Add this to your HO Scale model railroad and complete the train set with the Trinity Rail Express Commuter Cars also produced by Rapido Trains.
