The GE Dash 9-40CW is a 4,000 horsepower (3,000 kW) diesel locomotive that was built by GE Transportation Systems of Erie, Pennsylvania between January 1996 and September 2004. All 1,090 units were built for Norfolk Southern Railway, as road numbers 8889 to 9978. Part of the “Dash 9” locomotive series, these units are usually rated at 4,000 hp (3,000 kW) instead of the usual 4,400 hp (3,300 kW) offered by the standard GE Dash 9-44CW.

The GE C44-9W is a 4,400 hp (3,273 kW) diesel locomotive built by GE Transportation Systems of Erie, Pennsylvania. Keeping in tradition with GE’s locomotive series nicknames beginning with the “Dash 7” of the 1970s, the C44-9W was dubbed the Dash 9 upon its debut in 1993. The design has since proven popular with North American railroads.
