GE Dash 8-32B Diesel-Electric Locomotive
The GE Dash 8-32B (also classified as B32-8 or D8-32B by some railroad companies) is a 4-axle 3,150 hp (2,350 kW) diesel-electric locomotive built by GE Transportation Systems between 1984 and 1989. It is part of the GE Dash 8 Series of freight locomotives.

A total of 49 examples of the Dash 8-32B model were built for North American railroads. The model is a 12-cylinder version of the (16 cylinder) Dash 8-40B(W) and is powered by GE's 7FDL engine. The GE Dash 8-32BWH (or B32-8WH) is a variant built with Head End Power (HEP) for Amtrak service. All Amtrak units are currently undergoing overhaul. In 2013, Norfolk Southern donated B32-8 number 3563 to the Lake Shore Railway Historical Society of North East, Pennsylvania. As of June 2016, all units still on the roster are pending scrapping. In May of 2017, the Everett Railroad purchased Dash 8-32B number 561 (formerly 3561) from Norfolk Southern.
