I see where the ES44DCs are getting changed to ES40DCs. Any info out there about when and why this change is taking place? Is GE doing anything for CSX due to the lost HP?

Mike,  
 
The request to de-rate the ES44DC to a 4000HP unit was done by CSX to meet the HP/Ton Matrix they use on trains.  The ES44DCs de-rating program is now over. Next on the list for CSX to fit the matrix will be the AC6000s being de-rated to 4400HP. Again this is for the HP/Ton matrix CSX wants to follow.  
 
Bob..
