In 1994, GE delivered the first AC4400CW locomotive, their answer to EMD's successful SD70MAC. The AC4400CW went on to become one of the most successful locomotives in the history of North American railroading. The AC4400CW is operated by railroads from East to West and Canada to Mexico. The main spotting feature for the AC4400CW, when compared to the similar C44-9W is the large Inverter Cabinet behind the helper's side of the cab (conductor/brakeman's side). The AC4400CW was phased out by GE and replaced with the newer ES44AC GEVO's. However, with thousands of these locomotives on the rails, it will be a common site for decades to come.

The Norfolk Southern AC44C6M locomotives are the result of a joint C40-9 rebuild program between Norfolk Southern & General Electric. These locomotives had extensive upgrade work including new wide cabs, AC traction motors, trucks and better emissions controls. After all NS C40-9's are upgraded, NS intends to convert it's roster of C44-9W's as well. Combined, this will produce over 1300 units if all are completed.
