The SD40-2 shares the same basic superstructure as the SD38-2 as it uses the same 16-645E3 engine (with turbo charging modifications). The Dash 2’s (-2) also have longer front and rear ‘porches’ than other models, making for distinguishing features when comparing locomotives. Another alteration from previous designs is the three radiator grilles mounted on the roof, where previously there were only two.

On March 2nd 1970, Burlington Northern Railroad was formed from a merger of four historic railroads: The Great Northern Railway, the Northern Pacific Railway, the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad, and the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway.
