> The 24 Norfolk Southern ES44ACs do not have CTE software. The CTE feature you describe is used on Union Pacific AC4400CWs. In order to reduce the tractive effort to levels safe for manifest trains, NS pusher crews on ES44ACs are instructed to cut out axles to match the maximum number of powered axles for that train.
