Default C4's

While not widely operated, BNSF has something like 600 of these on order / in service. As with their large initial order of SD70MAC's perhaps other carriers are looking at how these units work out (reliability of the 4 raction motors and center axle mechanism / wheel wear) before purchasing.

These 4-motor units make sense for FEC which would have little need for modern 6-motor units on their essentially-flat railroad.
