Default Ge Ac60ocw, Ac6000cw

What is the difference between the GE AC60OCW and the AC6000CW? Is there not also an AC60CW?

Thanks!

An AC60CW is an abbreviation or shortened version for the term AC6000CW. There is no such thing as an AC600CW. Sometimes the AC6000CW series are referred to as "Super 60s" or "Big Sixes." The DC-counterpart to an AC6000CW would have been a C60-9W, but none were ever ordered or built.

GE could not have offered a "DC" version of the AC6000. It is very difficult to obtain "DC" propulsion over 4000hp.
