This is InterMountain 9343S SD40-2 Loco ONT with sound. SD40-2 locomotive, Ontario Northland #1736 (DCC and sound equipped). The SD40-2 was introduced in January 1972 as part of EMD's Dash 2 series. Although higher-horsepower locomotives were available, including EMD's own SD45-2, the reliability and versatility of the 3,000-horsepower SD40-2 made it the best-selling model in EMD's history and the standard of the industry for several decades after its introduction. The SD40-2 was an improvement over the SD40, with modular electronic control systems similar to those of the experimental DDA40X. Peak production of the SD40-2 was in the mid-1970s. Sales of the SD40-2 began to diminish after 1981 due to the oil crisis, increased competition from GE's Dash-7 series and the introduction of the EMD SD50, which was available concurrently to late SD40-2 production. The last SD40-2 delivered to a United States railroad was built in July 1984, with production continuing for railroads in Canada until 1988, Mexico until February 1986, and Brazil until October 1989. As of 2013, nearly all still remain in service. Its key features are: Railway specific details such as different noses, radiator grilles, dynamic brake, headlight variations etc. Assembled DC/DCC sound equipped Kadee knuckle couplers
