GE Continues Rebuilding Locomotives in Erie

Although the future of the GE Transportation locomotive assembly plant in Erie, Pennsylvania, remains murky, the facility continues to rebuild and test locomotives.

This week Canadian Pacific AC4400CW No. 8200 was seen on the test track being evaluated.

It is the first of 30 AC4400CWs to begin testing after being rebuilt at the plant in Lawrence Park.

The units are known as AC44CWMs and are nearly identical to other rebuilt CP locomotives in the 8000 and 8100 series.

The 8200 series, though, features software and other minor changes. The rebuilding of the CP locomotives is expected to be completed in the coming months.
