GE signed a $1 billion deal with Ukraine last week. It comes on top of the recent CN order in December and $900 million order for Kazakhstan in January. Why they would want to sell off this division for short term gains to offset the losses at the power division is beyond me.
GE Transportation has signed its third major deal in recent months. This one is worth $1 billion.Here is the Kazakhstan info which I didn't see posted previously.

Included in that deal is an agreement to provide 30 Evolution series freight locomotives, additional locomotives kits, rehabilitate existing locomotives and provide long-term maintenance services.

GE Transportation has signed a pair of deals worth more than $900 million with Kazakhstan’s state-run railroad, Kazakhstan Temir Zholy or KTZ.
The contracts include the delivery of 300 shunter locomotives — small locomotives typically used in rail yards or to make short hauls — and an 18-year service agreement to manage the maintenance and repair of 175 passenger GE Evolution locomotives.
