Built by GE from 1993 until 2004, the Dash 9-44CW and its variants were the definitive North American mainline freight locomotives of their time, with an impressive 3668 total units built. Constructed for US railroads from coast to coast, the units were also ordered by Canadian roads, and significant export orders went to Australia and Brazil.
The new Athearn Genesis 2.0 Dash 9-44CW is equally as impressive as its prototype, with a host of railroad specific details. From the Canadianspecific Dash 9-44CWL version with its 4-window cab to the CNW units with their unique roof vents, these models take the Genesis 2.0 line to new heights. Standard on all models are Athearn’s superior paint colors researched from the prototypes to be As Close to Real as it Gets.
