CN/BCRAIL/QN&L GE Dash 8-40CM Shell
Mechanically identical to the Dash 8-40CW, the Dash 8-40CM was constructed only for Canadian railways, with a production total of 84 units. It is distinguished from the Dash 8-40CW by the addition of a full-width cowl body and the use of a Canada-specific nose and windshield configuration. The trucks also differ, all units built ride on Dofasco trucks identical to locomotives built by Montreal Locomotive Works, Bombardier, and Morris-Knudsen.
