Announcement: New Rivet Counter HO ES44 GEVOs
« on: May 27, 2021, 05:16:34 PM »
We’re excited to announce the latest run of Rivet Counter HO Scale ES44 GEVOs which includes new roadnames, paint schemes, and Norfolk Southern Heritage Units.

Designed and manufactured by General Electric to meet the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier 2 Emissions Standards that first took effect in 2005, the first prototype locomotives were built in 2003. Since then, the ES44 has become the best-selling diesel locomotive of all-time with nearly 8,000 units being produced. The ES44 series is owned by all Class I Railroad Companies in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. In our latest run, we’re featuring railroads from all three countries.

In addition, we’re featuring unique paint scheme variations for each roadname including: four (4) Norfolk Southern Heritage Units; Canadian Pacific #8939 with Lord Strathcona’s Crest; Union Pacific #7964 with commemorative 5000th ES44 GEVO labels; and for the first time in HO Scale: the Ferromex “Zebra” scheme.

Roadnames and paint schemes include:

•Canadian Pacific/Standard red
•Canadian Pacific/with Lord Strathcona’s crest
•Ferromex/Red and green
•Norfolk Southern/Horsehead
•Norfolk Southern/Heritage units with PTC array (SOU, INT, PRR, NS)
•Union Pacific/Flag scheme
•Union Pacific/GE 5000th Evolution Series locomotive

Preorder the standard ES44 roadnames by Monday, June 28th, for an early 2022 delivery. Preorder now:

That Ferromex scheme is slick... though it made me think of a girl who puts on a sexy dress to grab the attention/lure of a rich suitor.. (with a similar paint scheme....)
I wanted a few GN cars to fill out my 10 car BN passenger train.
.. I ended up with 21 Empire Builder cars.
