Did any of the CN GP38/40W's have Dynamic Brakes?

Hi
I don't know if any of the wide nose comfort cab versions had D'brakes.  I suspect not.  The standard cab version of the GP-40 did have.  What has happened since CN sold off GP-38/40-2s depends who got them.  I have seen KCS units with d'brakes, which I think happened post CN.  Some more research needed.
Cheers
Steve

All of CN's GP40-2s were delivered without dynamic brakes.

Thanks also Jim.  I did a Google search which did show 4000 series GP-40s with dynamic brakes, but no '-2s.  The builders photos I have show the only second generation Geeps delivered to CN with dynamic brakes were the GP-35s.
