NOHAB went out of business and was replaced by Kalmar Verkstads AB as the Swedish licensee about 1980. GM production was from 1954 to about 1989. Final unit built, a T-44 exported to Israel, might not have been built on an EMD order number, but assembled from spare parts.

Units built for Denmark had mechanical parts built by FRICHS, so they also had FRICHS serial numbers, show in brackets.

Danish MZ class units, while identified by EMD as "SD40" and "SD45-2" have a double-cab full-cowl body and should have been identified as "JT26C" and "JT30C-2".

Notes On Serials 2402,2416-2419

Serial 2402 was built as a demonstrator/test locomotive and it was leased to Finnish State Railways 12/58 to 03/60 as KDs1 (actual loco never carried a fleet number, though). It was tested against an MaK locomotive and was found to be a superior performer, so Finnish State Railways placed a tentative order for a series of locomotives with Nohab, and planned to acquire serial 2402. However political pressure from labor unions and Finnish builders resulted in the Government's refusal to ratify the order, and ordering from Lokomo and Valmet instead. The demo was eventually returned to Nohab, and after trials in Sweden eventually this unit went to Norwegian State Railways as 3.643 in 12/60.

Two of the locomotives of the tentative order (2416 and 2417) were near completion when the order was given up on, so they were completed as planned and were leased out to the Norwegian State Railways as 41.01 and 41.02 12/59 to 07/60. They were then sold to Norwegian State Railways and renumbered 3.641 and 3.642.

The remaining two locomotives (2418 and 2419) had barely been started, so when construction was resumed, they were completed to standard Norwegian specifications, including C-C instead of A1A-A1A running gear, and were delivered to Norwegian State Railways as standard class Di3a's 3.623 and 3.622 in 08/60 and 07/60 respectively. The three oddballs 3.641 to 3.643 were assigned class Di3b instead.
