Built in the late 1980s by GE, the DASH 8-40B diesel locomotives were identified by their dynamic brake gear located along the roof line between the cab and engine compartment, with engine ventilation provided by large roof-top grilles. These four-axle, high horsepower engines are still in service today in North America.
