It’s back! And this time, it's even better than ever! The Dash 8-40CM (also known as the C40-8M or “Dash 8”) returns, but now with FULL DETAIL. The Dash 8 has been fully redesigned from the ground up and now features full underbody details, roadname-specific details, operating ditch lights, factory-installed rock lights on BC Rail units, working white class lights, optional split-cooling radiators and much, much more!

The Dash 8-40CM was introduced in 1990 with a total of 55 units for Canadian National (2400-2454) and 26 units for BC Rail (4601-4626). A further three locomotives (401-403) were built for the QNSL in March 1994. With CN’s purchase of BC Rail came the fleet of Dash 8s, which would see them released into general service across North America. It was not uncommon to see BC Rail Dash 8s operating everywhere on CN's expanded North American network, and even all the way to Florida and Texas.
