The Officially Licensed GE ET44 "Tier 4 GEVO" from InterMountain continues our tradition of excellence in this series of modern, GE-built locomotives. This all-new model features finely molded parts, railroad specific details, prototype based color representation with laser sharp painting and printing inlcuding the numerous miniature labels accurately represented. Our all-new Tier 4 drive is smooth, heavy (approx. 1.6 lbs), and powerful with an all new larger motor.
The first release of this model showcased the "as-delivered" version with the "square exhaust" for all roads except Norfolk Southern which never received any units with the square exhaust.
The second release features the GE modified "angled exhaust" version for all roads except Navajo Mine Railroad which received the "square exhaust" for their two units.
