The Dash 8-40CM (also known as the C40-8M or just the “CN Dash 8”) was delivered to Canadian National, British Columbia Railway and Quebec North Shore & Labrador between 1990 and 1994. CN received 30 units (2400-2429) in 1990, classified EF-640a (General Electric, Freight, 6 Axles, 4000 HP, batch a). This was followed by a further 25 units (2430-2454) in 1992, classified EF-640b.

BC Rail received 22 units (4601-4622) in 1990, followed by four more (4623-26) in 1993. These were transferred to CN following the de facto purchase of BCR in 2004. The final units were for QNSL, which purchased three (401-403). These arrived in March 1994 and were later sold to The Andersons (renumbered AEX 100017-19).
