At the west end of Leyden, the Ski Train has pretty well reached track speed for the trip back into town. At its peak, Amtrak held 215 F40PHs on the roster. Many of these units were designated F40PHRs, the "R" indicated they had been built - to some extent - using parts from traded in SDP40's. Such was the case for all three of the Ski Train units (SKTX 242, SKTX 283 and SKTX 289).
