The GMD SD40-2F was a 3,000 hp (2,250 kW) C-C diesel locomotive built by General Motors Diesel. It was fundamentally an SD40-2 in a cowl unit full-width body. A total of 25 units were built solely for the Canadian Pacific Railway. They were delivered in 1988 and 1989, after the end of production for the regular SD40-2. The engines were CP's only cowl units, and have been nicknamed "red barns" by railfans.

The locomotives are numbered 9000-9024. These were the only new locomotives to be delivered to the CPR in the "Action Red" paint scheme, a variation upon the "Multimark" paint scheme lacking the black-and-white "Pac-Man" emblem. Two engines, numbers 9000 and 9022, have been repainted in the "Dual Flags" paint scheme. They were delivered without the porthole in the nose door; this was retrofitted to most units in the early 90s.

On December 13, 2012, CP retired SD40-2F 9000, 9002, 9005, 9010, 9016, 9018, 9019, 9022, and 9024, which will be sent to EMD - Progress Rail in Mayfield, KY for rebuild into SD30C-ECO units.


On June 9, 2009, SD40-2F's 9000, 9001 and 9018 were involved in a derailment is Oshawa, Ontario, on CP's Belleville Sub. Though none appear to have been badly damaged (one involved in a minor fuel fire), all three remain out of service as of December, 2009, and will likely remain that way until traffic levels improve.
