The EMD-designed F40PH cab units have long the backbone of Metra power on the "Burlington Racetrack." Built during the latter part of the 1970s, the F40s were the first commuter locomotives driven by EMD's 645 power plant. They were also the first locos to be head-end power equipped. A 2009 upgrade program had the EMDs rebuilt to F40PH-3 specifications, thus extending their service life another 10 to 15 years. Metra #112 is seen here leading a westbound train through Hinsdale.
