Virginia Railway Express V40-V41 were 1999 model EMD F59PHI locomotives.

They were leased from Sound Transit from 2002-2008 due to an equipment shortage. They operated with leased BiLevel cars V101-V103, V105, V301-V309, V311-V312, V314, V327-V328 as part of two complete trainsets. The leased equipment retained their white, blue and teal Sounder livery, but had VRE logos and fleet numbers applied.
