NS C40-8W DC to AC Conversions
Author: fatnrat

Apparently NS is starting another DC to AC conversion program with C40-8Ws. NS 8356 has been sent to Juniata for AC conversion.

Neither the AltoonaWorks website nor the NSDash9 website have any indication of this. NS Dash 9-40C 8865 is in the process of being rebuilt according to NSDash9. I wonder if someone didn't fat finger the keyboard!

They'll probably both mention the D8-40CW conversions eventually.

Never say never. Still with all the engineering already done on the Dash 9 to AC4400 program and over 1000 potential cores, I have my doubts about a Dash 8 based program. It is made much more difficult due to the fact that GE never engineered an AC Dash 8.

Preliminary info I have is that it was listed that way in the computer system by mistake. At any rate, NS 8356 has not yet been retired.

It's on the internet so it must be true.

According to Railfan & Railroad magazine, the rebuild program to make the units into Dash 8.5CW models has been scuttled.

More than likely, this project will NOT happen. So please, confirm before posting.

All right you Trainodors, guess I was wrong.
