Designed in 1967 at the request of the Santa Fe, the FP45 was basically an SDP45 road switcher with a streamlined cab unit body. The "P" in FP45 indicated a passenger diesel with a steam generator for train heat. Having a sleeker, more aerodynamic look than a road switcher, the FP45 blended better with its passenger consists; the fully enclosed body also reduced wind resistance and allowed the crew to perform troubleshooting and minor maintenance on the road. Purchased for passenger service by the Santa Fe and the Milwaukee Road, the 3600 hp FP45s replaced first-generation E-unit and F-unit diesel sets and eventually found themselves handling freight duties as well. By 1971, the units remaining in passenger service were working exclusively for Amtrak. A sister engine, the F45, was bought for freight-only service by the Santa Fe, Great Northern, and Burlington Northern. Having first appeared in the M.T.H. Premier Line in 1997, the FP45 makes its long-awaited return in 2005 as part of the RailKing Scale diesel lineup. Built to 1/48 scale proportions and outfitted with Proto-Soundr 2.0, the FP45 includes all the features that make RailKing Scale locomotives one of the best values in model railroading.
