C44-9 Diesel Scheme
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. The design has since proven popular with North American railroads. 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.
Many North American railroads have ordered the C44-9W. They were originally ordered by Chicago & North Western Railway, Santa Fe, BNSF, CSX, Southern Pacific, Canadian National Railway, BC Rail, and Union Pacific Railroad. Norfolk Southern purchased the very similar Dash 9-40CWs.

(C) General Notes
For CV155=01 ["Semi_automatic Notching"] when CV60=1=Diesel, the Prime mover lowest Notch setting is set by
the throttle speed setting. F6 (ON) can increase the Notch and F7 (ON) will decrease the Prime mover
to the minimum notch set by current throttle setting.
Some users have put this scheme in GE dash8 models.
