Yes, the "Dash-9-X99XX" type of specification is common, but this template uses the Santa Fe's style of specifying Dash-8 and Dash-9 locomotives. Basically, Santa Fe preferred to use the model designation format from the earlier -7 series, so a Dash-9-C40W is listed here as a C40-9W for brevity. The links themselves will link to the appropriate Dash-X type name as listed in List of GE locomotives. slambo 00:03, 26 Oct 2004 (UTC)
