RoadRailer Simulations proudly presents: The Canadian National C40-8!

 

The General Electric Dash 8-40C (C40-8) was originally built from 1987 to 1992. It was the successor to the C39-8, which had a standard cab and a 3,900 horsepower 7FDL-16 engine, but was unpopular with railroad crews. The C40-8 was similar to the C39-8, only with slightly more horsepower than its predecessor.

 

In total, approximately 560 units were built during its production run. The Union Pacific were the largest buyer of C40-8's with over 250 units; other buyers being CSX Transportation (CSX) with over 130 units, Chicago and North Western (CNW) with 77 units (these CNW C40-8's were later upgraded with 4,100 horsepower engines, known as the C41-8), Norfolk Southern (NS) with 75 units, and Conrail (CR) with 25 units.

 

In 2010, CN acquired 35 former CNW locomotives from UP, and numbered them into the 21xx series. 3 years later, CN acquired the 42 former CNW units, and numbered them to the 20xx series. 6 CN C40-8s were painted for the 15th anniversary of their privatization. In 2016, Pan Am Railways acquired 20 former CSX C40-8s.
