Actually, one of the smaller "regional railroads".



See the August 15, 2008 TRAINS Newswire for more information. Sharp looking scheme, IMHO.  8)

IAIS is getting GEVOs I believe.

Nice scheme! Wheeling and lake Erie had/has been running some. It would be nice if they painted acouple up in their D&RGW inspired scheme.

IAIS is getting GEVO's and the first 5 should be at Midwest railcar by now for painting and fitting out.

I thought, at least, that they were ex-UP...

EDIT: I think they may be ex-CEFX...  ???

Here is a photo of the first five GEVO's in transit from Erie to Midwest Railcar:

For you CR fans, check out the pretty blue spaced nicely thorughout. I think I see a high hood GP38 (Southern RR?) off on the left side there too. Can't make out the number.
