BNSF is the first to receive this new locomotive from GE. The ES44C4 is a step up from the ES44DCs. It uses only 4 traction motors. The middle axle is a idler axle that can be raised to put added weight on the for powered axles. The TE is about the same as the DC units, but uses AC tech….. Still in a test phase but should be coming to a hot shot intermodal train near you!
