AMTRAK P42DC #200

The P42DC (GENESIS Series I) is the successor model to the P40DC. It has an engine output of 4,250 horsepower (3,170 kW) at 1047 rpm, or 3,550 horsepower (2,650 kW) when running in HEP mode (900 rpm) with a 0 kW HEP load. Traction horsepower in HEP mode decreases to a bare minimum of 2,525 horsepower (1,880 kW) when providing the full 800 kW HEP load to the train.
The P42DC has a maximum speed of 110 mph (177 km/h), though Via Rail Canada only permits its engines to travel at a maximum speed of 100 mph (161 km/h). Tractive effort is rated at 280.25 kN (63,000 lbf) of starting effort and 169 kN (38,000 lbf) of continuous effort at 38 mph (61.2 km/h) given wheel horsepower of 3,850 horsepower (2,870 kW).
P42DCs are used primarily on most of Amtrak's long-haul and higher-speed rail service outside the Northeast Corridor, as well as a service with speeds up to 160 km/h (99 mph) on Via Rail's Quebec City-Windsor rail corridor when it replaced the LRC locomotives in 2001. VIA's P42DCs are known as EPA-42a and also have a third headlight above the original cluster.
