Requirements & Suggestions
The General Electric C44-9W is a 4,400 horsepower diesel locomotive built by GE Transportatoin Systems of Erie, Pennsylvania. Slightly longer than its predecessors at 73 feet, 2 inches, the C44-9W used a new HiAd, bolsterless low-weight truck that was designed for better grip on the rails no matter the weather. A spliet cooling system lowered engine temperatures and fuel consumption as well, granting these locomotives a longer operation life and lower overhead costs. Due to more stringent emissions requirements that came into effect in the United States on January 1, 2005, the Dash 9-44CW has been replaced by the General Electric ES44DC locomotives.
