They were purchased outright, financed through "BMO Harris Equipment Finance Company, some retroactively, as the units listed on the final page as MEC are also in a previous recordation with GE listed as the lender. Though its not in the recordation, I heard the initial group of C40's was purchased for around 200K/unit, and following orders for a percentage less as they opted not to purchase warranty and GE technical service which saved pretty substantial coin.
STB recordation for 24 of the GE's its not all of them, but a good chunk anyway. More may show up, as STB seems rather slow to post recordations...
