In 1993, General Electric introduced the C44-9W locomotive, which quickly became known as the “Dash 9.” Among the railroads to order them were Santa Fe, Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Chicago & North Western and Southern Pacific. These locomotives were produced in large quantities for the these and other North American railroads until the end of 2004. The C44-9W continue in service today for their original and subsequent owners with many being given a new lease on like in various rebuild programs.
