Man, you would think these units could be "Sold" easily! CN should have gotten some more too!!!! They really don't seem too "OLD!!!!" I guess that's the way with GE locos!!!! :?

There is a possibility that only the cabs, and not the entire locomotive is being scrapped out. GE did say they, not that they will, had plans to rebuilt the CSX C40-8s with newer and different cabs for reselling. This is what NS is doing with the former U.P. units they are rebuilding. Cabs only are being scrapped out by the dozens near Cresson.

As far as age, the C40-8s were built 1988-1990. They're almost 30 years old...the "expiration" date for GEs.

I remember when the (ghost toasters) first arrived. Yet the older EMD's live on!
