Description

Norfolk & Southern Rail Road 4,400 hp locomotive photographed on the morning of 19 September 2014 from the Capitol Limited express train as it approached Chicago, Illinois from Washington DC. The 780 mile overnight journey had passed through Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Cleveland Ohio, Toledo Ohio and this picture was taken somewhere near South Bend Indiana.
General Electric introduced its Dash 9 locomotive range in 1993 to include such improvements as better fuel efficiency, tighter emission control and better adhesion. It also brought a new bogie design, known as the GE ‘Hi-AD’ truck. Dash 9 locomotives became GE’s standard direct current traction range. The diesel engine is a GE 7FDL-16 producing 3,278 kW (4,400 hp).
