Model Information: The C44-9W model was introduced by Kato in 1997. Later, in 2005, Kato introduced the AC4400CW, which shares the same mechanism. Further revisions occurred in 2007 and 2009. Both models differ only in minor shell details. Some versions of these models feature operating ditch lights which work by means of using fiber-optic style total internal refraction to channel light from the lightboard LED's to various points on the shell.

These are modern, split-frame, dual-flywheel mechanisms with shells that sport operating knuckle couplers and trucks that sport low-profile blackened wheels. They run smooth and quiet and can pull 30+ cars each.

DCC Information: They are DCC-Ready and accept the Digitrax DN163K1C decoder

Prototype History: The GE C44-9W is a 4,400 hp (3,281 kW) diesel-electric locomotive built by GE Transportation Systems of Erie, Pennsylvania. Keeping in tradition with GE's locomotive series nicknames beginning with the "Dash 7" of the 1970s, the C44-9W was dubbed the Dash 9 upon its debut in 1993. It is also referred to as Dash 9-44CW. The design has since proven popular with North American railroads, although some railroads, like CSX, preferred its AC equivalent, the AC4400CW.
Mode than 2,500 units have been sold to all major railroads, with BNSF being the largest buyer by far with 1697 units.
Because of more stringent emissions requirements that came into effect in the United States on January 1, 2005, the Dash 9-44CW has been replaced in production by the GE ES44DC (GEVO).

Road Name History: The Union Pacific Railroad (reporting mark UP) is a freight hauling railroad that operates 8,500 locomotives over 32,100 route-miles in 23 states west of Chicago, Illinois and New Orleans, Louisiana. The Union Pacific Railroad network is the largest in the United States and employs 42,600 people. It is also one of the world's largest transportation companies.

Union Pacific Railroad is the principal operating company of Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE: UNP); both are headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. Over the years Union Pacific Corporation has grown by acquiring other railroads, notably the Missouri Pacific, Chicago & North Western, Western Pacific, Missouri-Kansas-Texas, and the Southern Pacific (including the Denver & Rio Grande Western).

Union Pacific Corporation's main competitor is the BNSF Railway, the nation's second largest freight railroad, which also primarily services the Continental U.S. west of the Mississippi River. Together, the two railroads have a duopoly on all transcontinental freight rail lines in the U.S.
