Hello A/c train,

The CF6 series of engines utilize an intermediate gearbox, but GE refers to it as the "transfer gearbox".
Whats interesting is the CF6-6 and -50, the accessory gearbox is in front of the transfer gearbox because the accessory gearbox is mounted under the fan section. And the CF6-80, the transfer gearbox is forward of the accessory gearbox because the AGB is under the core engine. Well, maybe its not THAT interesting.

RR have a radial shaft from N3 rotor and a step-aside gearbox.

I found some AA 757 studyguides I have and the RR RB211-535E4 call this the "Bevel Gearbox".
