I don't think that paint scheme looks right on these engines. It just looks different like it does not belong, but all in all great shot.

Oh yeah, thats awesome! Love it.

The scheme doesn't look as bad as it first appeared, I guess something you have to get used too, though the scheme does have more potential.

Not the biggest fan of the new paint scheme, but it will be cool to see large power on a small railroad line. Is that the BICB ethanol train?

Great shot! Bad paint scheme, kind of looks like someone put a HO scale nose emblem on an N scale engine. Even cheverons would look better on the front (and back) than this.

Am I weird for actually liking that paint scheme?

Nice catch Tom, worth getting up early for.

Wow Nice paint scheme love it!

As a brit, I'm probably gonna get lynched for saying this... To my eyes, this is just another hood loco with little to distinguish it from other hood locos, except the paint scheme. I think it looks fantastic, although the version applied to the GP38's and Sd38's looks much better. Thank goodness for freedom of speech!!

I think if the red stripe ran all the way down the long hood that this paint job would look better. I do like it but it could be done a bit better.

Great find. I thought GE did away with the steerable truck option?
Posted by Tanner on September 20, 2008 
I have to agree with Erick Anderson, I like it.

We railfan's are alway's pickly when it comes to what colors are on all kinds of railroad locomotives. No wounder railroads and railroad cops don't like railfan's. I think the IAIS Es44AC(gevo's) look great in the Iowa Interstate black' yellow and red. Alex Schmollinger.

Nice catch Tom, looks sharp.

I like the paint scheme. Adds a little more color to the CSX Dark Future and BNSF Orange Bonnet.

I might be weird but I think its really sharp, it reminds of of older schemes, I like it better then CSX or UP's lame schemes. But I also like MM tractors (Yellow and Red), I think its sharp. Great Picture. Mike

I like the scheme too. I admit it is lacking in the hood area though. It was supposed to have an IAIS logo above the red stripe there. For some reason, the logo was not added. Still, it's a very nice scheme.

Even though the emblem on the nose is pretty big, its not as bad as what CSX did to there ACe's, you know, HO loco with N scale CSX emblem. Also I think if they were to put stripes on the nose, it would have clashed with the emblem.

Nice Catch. I am digging the paint scheme. Good to see somebody besides UP, CSX, BNSF with this power

By far the best paint scheme anyone has put on a GEVO EVER!
