Is it safe to assume that these will be GE-built GEVOs?

Thanks,

I thought NS didn't like AC units? What is the reason for this?

NS has fully embraced the use of AC traction and since there are plenty of DC traction units on the roster for applications where those are best suited, look for most future orders to be for AC units at this point.
