A GE Dash 8-40CW is a 6-axle diesel-electric locomotive built by GE Transportation Systems from 1990 to 1994. It is part of the GE Dash 8 Series of freight locomotives.
This locomotive model is sometimes referred to as a C40-8W, and is distinguished from the Dash 8-40C by the addition of a "wide" or "safety" cab.
A cowl-bodied version of this locomotive, built only for the Canadian market, was the GE Dash 8-40CM.
Famous quotes containing the word dash:
“More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
—Clement Clarke Moore (17791863)
