Icon of Amtrak, staple of freight railroads, and bane of furfags everywhere. What's not to love?
I've actually had the privilege of riding on a train pulled by one of these industrial giants, going down the line, passing stopped highway traffic, thinking to myself, "OUT OF THE WAY FUCKERS, CAUSE WE'RE A GODDAMN TRAIN!"
So yeah, you get the gist.

Caltrain, ACE, Metrolink or Trirail?, those are the only two operators I can think of that still use F40s and not F59s.
By the way the F40PH meme was forced by Ham549 of 1chan
One of my first HO scale locos was an F40. They look really pretty in the snow for some reason, senpai
Just about every single commuter agency with dieselized routes still use them with the exception of a few small meme commuter rail lines in Salt Lake City and New Mexico and other places.
Amtrak still uses phase 2 F40's on their Hiawatha and Hoosier State services. The engine is gutted but they have their original liveries and look rusty as shit. They just use them as control units now.
>tfw an F40PH will unironically be passing several dozen yards from me in about half an hour
I paid $20 just to be able to make this screenshot
Metra has the largest F40PH fleet, IIRC senpai

I think it was in part because it was the face of Amtrak for so long and it was during the formative years.
Then it took off after it became used to derail (hue) furfag threads. And the rest is meme history.
