  BNSF Trying New Kind of Bogies under ES44C4s in 2010

BNSF stack train lead by a ES44C4 number 6619 C44-9W number 5141 and BNSF ES44 number 7813, Southwest U.S.A.

BNSF is trying a totally new concept on a couple of dozen of it's newest work horses, the General Electric built ES44C4's. The C4 stands for arrangement, where in each bogie the middle axle is supplied without the motor and the outside wheels are motored. This should enable the same power for the unit without sacrificing the precious kilonewtons needed to move the train as the true six ES44AC with six powered axles. Below the unit seen form the side and further down the closeup of the bogie, showing clearly the device to raise the axle when it's not needed.

BNSF ES44C4 number 6619 bogie details, U.S.A.
When the middle axle is raised this makes the unit effectively four axled, going back to the period twenty years ago when new geeps appeared from the assembly line. Or even further back when the six axled diesels had only the outside wheels on the bogie powered. With the come back BNSF is assuming it will save costs, less moving parts and less money spent, quite simple actually. Below the new unit on the tip of the hot shot double stack train.
