The ES (Evolution Series) of locomotives are built by GE
Transportation Systems and designed to meet the U.S. EPA’s
Tier 2 locomotive emissions standards that took effect in 2005.
These Evolution Series locomotives are equipped with AC
traction motors and are powered by a newly designed “GEVO12” 12 cylinder engine that produces the same power as the 16
cylinder AC4400CW, but with fewer emissions and greater
fuel economy. It also carries a redesigned air-to-air dual-fan
heat exchanger, which gives it its distinct “oversized” radiator;
a common spotting feature for these new locomotives.
Locomotive Features:
 Multiple body styles to reflect different “as delivered”
railroad specifications
 Powerful five-pole KATO motor with dual brass
 Directional Headlight and illuminated, preprinted
 Illuminated ditch lights
 Kato magnetic knuckle coupler
