Remarks & Notes 
In a world full of safety cabs locomotives it's nice every now, and then to look back in the archives to look at some of the cooling pieces of railroad equipment that existed. NS 161 (Louisville,KY-Chattanooga,TN) is tied down on the Chattanooga Diesel Shop limits at Debutts Yard. A now what is mostly a piece of memory is the lead motor. This was one of the most interesting GE product that has come from the Dash 9 series, the obvious is Norfolk Southern was the only railroad that order 125 of these 4,000 horsepower units in 1995, and too think that the D9-40C's where going to last forever. NS 8795 like it's sisters where on borrowed time, as the company was looking forward into the future, of rebuilding all of it's Dash 9 fleet into the now AC44C6M's
